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.
