  • Mosquito Lagoon New Smyrna Daytona Beach Backcountry

    Winter fishing is coming to central Florida, now still on the warm side with water temperatures in the upper 60’s, so a late fall pattern continues so far, Seatrout are widespread through the backcountry on Mosquito Lagoon and the Indian River here in the New Smyrna Beach area. Still catching lots of different species with 10 to 15 varieties on most back water trips, in addition the Trout, we are landing Redfish, Snook, Sheepshead, Black Drum, Mangrove Snapper, andmore. Live shrimp still the best all around bait, as all the different species love them, as the water has been clearing with dropping water temps, sight fishing for flats Redfish with select size shrimp and live finger mullet are always a winter technique.With cooling water more Sheepshead and Drum come to the boat, this fall Pompano and Whiting have been in the backwaters here from their usual surf areas making for good light tackle fun on these species.Kelly caught a good Black Drum out of a deeper backcountry hole on a variety trip with lots of all the usual species also landed………………

    Bill and Bruce here visiting from New Jersey out on a fun mixed bag backwaters trip, Bill with one of the better Seatrout caught………………

    ……..and also several good Pompano landed on this foggy morning outing………………….

    Repeat client Kevin from Savannah here for a Thanksgiving visit came outwith his friends for a flats hunting trip for Redfish, landing just 3 Reds before a cold front arriving thunderstorm shortened our trip,Matt with one of the Reds…………….

    Jeff with another one of the good Pompano landed this fall ………………

    Sheepshead are a winter/spring staple here, Ken with a nice one from a recent trip…………
