Our beautiful early summer weather has been here this past week with some really nice and sunny days. Pleasant temperatures and low relative humidity along with low changes of rain makes it very comfortable to fish this time of year around New Smyrna Beach. The bite has been good and it’s just been a lot of fun to be on the water.
Mosquito Lagoon is our renowned flats fishery that’s just south of Ponce Inlet and New Smyrna Beach. Ponce Inlet is the headwaters for this shallow water lagoon that runs 33 miles down the coast all the way to NASAs Kennedy Space Center. The sight fishing lately for redfish, trout, and black drum has been very good. Some snook have also been in a few areas we fish. This is perfect fishing for fly and light tackle anglers.
The New Smyrna Beach area has been fishing well also with larger reds and snook activity during lower light periods around sunrise. Tarpon and false albacore tuna could give us some opportunities this month as a lot of our warm water species begin to arrive and get active.
This is a great time of year to fish for all of our fisheries options so take advantage of the early summer conditions!
