The fishing in and around the New Smyrna Beach waters has been good and should not be slacking off anytime soon. We have had variety of fish both in the intracoastal and the backwaters of Mosquito Lagoon. Look for jacks , tarpon and several other species cruising in the bait pods throughout the intracoastal. The shallow water bite has also been good with several snook, redfish and trout coming boat side this past week. The bait has been plentiful from New Smyrna south through Mosquito Lagoon allowing easy meals for game fish. Live bait has been working well and matching the hatch has been even better. Plugs and spoons have also been getting the job done in the early mornings but has been slowing down on artificial as the water starts to warm later in the day. The forecast for the next week looks to be good so the bite should continue to be good.
