The weather has been great the past few days here in the New Smyrna Beach area. The water is still a lot higher then it should be for this time of year through out New Smyrna Beach and Mosquito Lagoon. The higher water has not effected the bite but it has effected the way you need to target them. In both the backwaters of New Smyrna Beach and Mosquito Lagoon the fish are spread out looking at new feeding opportunities with this higher water conditions. Covering a lot of water early with plugs and spoons on and around the oyster beds in the New Smyrna Beach area has been working well. The same gos for Mosquito Lagoon but instead of oysters target the shallow bars and grass flats. I believe we will be receiving a cold front toward the end of the week which will hopefully help empty some of this water out of Mosquito Lagoon and New Smyrna Beach area and kick off our winter time pattern.
