The recent cold fronts moving through New Smyrna Beach and Mosquito Lagoon have done wonders for the water clarity. I know that it’s a little aggravating dealing with the winds that come with the fronts but the benefits are worth dealing with. The sight fishing has been good and only expected to get better over the next few months. With the water temps dropping look for trout and redfish to be holding in the sand holes through out Mosquito Lagoon and on the mud flats around the New Smyrna Beach area. The sheep head have also started to work their way onto the flats as well and the black drum are also making an appearance too. Live shrimp or artificial’s have been the go to baits lately along with the occasional finger mullet.
