New Smyrna Beach Fishing Charters
The last week or so has been spot on for the normal summer weather pattern around New Smyrna Beach with few clouds and mostly calm winds and we have been catching some nice fish!
On the calm days we have been able to get off Ponce Inlet, Daytona Beach and New Smyrna Beach targeting tarpon with opportunities at big jack crevalle, albies and sharks mixed in.
On the days with a little more wind and clouds we have switched to targeting redfish in the New Smyrna Beach area with good result, landing some of our typical large sized bull reds.
Mosquito Lagoon just to the south of New Smyrna Beach has still been clear enough for sight fishing with both spin and fly rods and will hopefully remain that way over the next month.
The last few weeks have brought some great fishing both inshore and nearshore in the New Smyrna Beach area. Summer patterns are here and the next month and a half will offer some of the calmest sea conditions we see all year.
Big tarpon, jack crevalle, false albacore tuna and sharks have made fun nearshore targets on light tackle recently off of New Smyrna Beach. These fish will continue to offer great opportunities throughout summer.
Bull redfish in the 25-40lb class around the New Smyrna Beach area have been steady in their pattern offering good opportunities with both spin and fly tackle. Some really big snook have been active as well with the warmer temperatures of summer, with some fish as big as 15-18lbs.
Sight fishing with fly and spin in Mosquito Lagoon just to the south of New Smyrna Beach remains an option for the next month or so depending on how rainfall impacts water clarity in that area.
The fishing around the New Smyrna Beach area has been a lot of fun recently. The summer patterns are here and both inshore and nearshore fishing has really been giving us a lot of opportunities lately, sometimes being able to do a little of both on many days.
Nearshore fishing off New Smyrna Beach has really been shaping up with some great fishing for tarpon, sharks and big jack crevalle. The rhythm of summer is fully in place and after waiting many months through winter and spring, I couldn’t be happier about it.
Inshore fishing has been fun as well with big redfish cooperating on most trips along with some big snook here and there. Tarpon will also move inshore in larger numbers soon.
Mosquito Lagoon which offers flats and back country style fishing just to the south of New Smyrna Beach has remained pretty fishy as we have entered summer. The primary goal in this area is sight fishing 4-8lb redfish, trout and snook fishing with fly and light tackle as they feed along shorelines and shallow areas.

Summer is here! The patterns around New Smyrna Beach have been steady and the fishing has been great. This is one of my favorite times of year to fish with many options.
Bull reds have been feeding well and we have caught quite a few fish on both spin and fly recently in the New Smyrna Beach area. The activity these fish display in summer is pretty epic!
Tarpon are now arriving both inshore and nearshore off New Smyrna Beach and adjacent areas. On calm days we can target the fish nearshore, and otherwise spend time trying to feed the inshore fish. While nearshore we are also keeping an eye out for false albacore tuna to target on light tackle.
Sight fishing in Mosquito Lagoon just to the south of New Smyrna Beach with both spin and fly tackle has been fun recently and should remain good for the next month or two before the hottest parts of summer arrive.
The time is now to plan your summer trips, let’s feed some fish!
