The bite continues to be strong throughout the Central Florida waters from New Smyrna Beach south through Mosquito Lagoon. We have been boating some nice slams quite often over the past week, and with a couple of cold fronts coming in the near future the bite will continue to get better. The water levels are still a little higher then normal throughout the New Smyrna area but the clarity is looking good. There is still a good number of bait to be found on the flats of Mosquito Lagoon and that has been the focus for fish. Look for the pockets and flats holding bait and target them with either soft plastics, spoons or plugs . The live bait has also been working well with live shrimp and finger mullet being the go to baits.
