October is always a fun time to fish in New Smyrna Beach and Mosquito Lagoon. The weather starts to settle down a bit and the bait shows up in large numbers. This is the time of year when you have many different species of game fish through out Mosquito Lagoon at the same time. From tarpon to snook and from redfish to flounder they can all be caught this time of year. Once we start to get our cold fronts moving through and lowering the water temps certain species will shut down but until that happens take advantage of the bait run moving through the New Smyrna Beach area.
