This past week we had a shift in winds changing to the south / southwest causing a increase in water throughout the New Smyrna Beach waters. With the higher and warmer water conditions it made for a little bit more difficult bite in Mosquito Lagoon and New Smyrna Beach area. It seems as though Mother Nature likes to keep us on our toes here in Central FL by sending us a little cold snap. We will be dealing with some windy conditions and cool temperatures the next few days in the New Smyrna Beach area. After this front moves through and the winds subside the water levels in Mosquito Lagoon and New Smyrna Beach area should lower allowing the fishing to get back to normal. Look for the redfish and trout to be holding in the sand holes through out Mosquito Lagoon. Slow presentations will be key whether it’s artificial or natural baits. Good luck and stay warm!
