The bite continues to stay strong throughout the waters of New Smyrna Beach and Mosquito Lagoon. We still have a steady flow of bait on the flats and the fish can still be found holding around it. Live bait and artificials have both been working well . Top waters early then moving to soft plastics and spoons later in the day . We have a good number of mullet around so try and match the mullet color pattern on your artificials for bed results. The go to live bait has been finger mullet , shrimp or pin fish. With the opening of snook season this month they have been beat on pretty hard but can still be found if you put your time in. The redfish and trout have been hanging in the shallows and moving to deeper water later in the day. Looks like the weather will be stable into next week which makes for a good time to get out and fish.
