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 of the year.
Big tarpon, false albacore tuna, jack crevalle and sharks have made fun nearshore targets on light tackle recently off New Smyrna Beach. These fish will continue to offer great opportunities throughout summer season.
Inshore around New Smyrna Beach, bull redfish in the 25-40lb class have been steady in their pattern offering good opportunities with both spin and fly tackle. Snook have been active as well with the warmer temperatures of summer.
Just to the south of the New Smyrna Beach area, sight fishing with fly and spin in Mosquito Lagoon remains an option for anglers on the calm and sunny days of early summer.
