    Default New Smyrna Beach Daytona Beach Mosquito Lagoon Florida

    Summeris knocking at the door here on the North Indian River and MosquitoLagoon Florida, water temps approaching 80’F, mullet and baitfishschools here for the summer, big variety of different saltwater fishspecies to be caught here in the backwaters. Through the summer wewill be catching Seatrout, Redfish, Snook, Mangrove Snapper, BlackDrum, Jack Crevalle, Ladyfish and always other surprise fish too.Summer patterns can be mostly scattered fish in the warm water withfish in ambush point locations, creek mouths and points with a goodtidal current flow, and shadowing baitfish schools, and bait andcrabs riding the tide along moving water channels. Fun surfacestriking fish are great for summer sight fishing activity, with openwater fish like Jack Crevalle, Ladyfish and even Tarpon, but Troutand Redfish will also come to the top. Summer baits include liveshrimp, pigfish, pinfish, and finger mullet, for artificials , earlymorning top waters, 3” shad tail jigs and twitch baits. Morningtrips are the summer norm, early feeding fish and a little coolerthan the heat of mid day. Ed from Astor, Florida out with a couplefriends on a recent backcountry trip caught all the usual differentspecies as well as this over slot 28” Redfish on a live shrimp andlight tackle……………..

    Nice report with a variety of fish being caught !!
    The finest gift you can give to any fisherman is to put a good fish back, and who knows if the fish that you caught isn't someone else's gift to you?"
