The bite continues to be good throughout the waters of New Smyrna Beach and Mosquito Lagoon. We have been boating a variety of species from redfish , trout , snook along with black drum and sheep head as well. The bait has been plenty full in the New Smyrna Beach backwaters. The water temps have definitely cooled down in Mosquito Lagoon and the surrounding waters. It looks like we have a major cold front coming into Central Florida Christmas weekend which should push a lot of these fish into even tighter groups making for a even better bite. Live bait and artificials have both been working well but the key is a slow presentation and down size in bait. I hope everyone has a safe and happy holiday.
