Recent trips have been yielding some great fish and great weather as well. With the recent cold fronts cooling temperatures down and shifting the wind direction it’s May for some great days on the water. The backwaters of New Smyrna Beach and Mosquito Lagoon continue to hold a great number of bait fish making for target areas to find game fish.
Plugs, spoons and soft plastics have been working well along with finger mullet and live shrimp. We have been boating redfish, trout , black drum and snook just to mention a few and from what I see now the winter bite is going to be just as good.
