It seems as though summer has set in here and around the New Smyrna Beach area. We are starting to get our afternoon thunder storms and strong afternoon winds. This time of year is a great time to catch several different species from snook, redfish, trout, black drum and tarpon. The bite has been good throughout Mosquito Lagoon and north through New Smyrna Beach. Look for snook and tarpon in the backwaters holding near structure with moving water. The trout and redfish can be found mixed in with the large pods of bait in the Lagoon. Early in the morning has been producing well with plugs then moving over to soft plastics or live bait. It looks like we may have some weather coming in later in the week making for a good bite prior to the arrival of the weather.
