As fall fishing enters the stretch of its last month, great opportunities at several species are available. Cooler and less humid weather has arrived in central Florida and this is one of the most comfortable times of the year in the New Smyrna Beach area.
Big bull redfish are still the specialty of our fishery and the primary target through the month of November. Large numbers of migratory fish are still in the area and eagerly searching for food before it’s time to return to the ocean. The great fishing and comfortable weather can make this a special month to fish.
In addition to redfish, we do have the occasional opportunity at snook and tarpon. These species may or may not be available on any given day, it just depends on conditions and bait availability.
In Mosquito Lagoon just to the south of New Smyrna Beach, water levels have dropped some since last months hurricane rains and the fishing has also been pretty good for hungry redfish along shorelines.
