Another couple weeks of too-nice-to-be-winter weather has passed and we have enjoyed some great days on the water in spring like conditions. Upper 70’s and sunny skies have had it feeling like it’s spring time. The fishing has been a lot of fun as well with a combination of cooler and warmer weather patterns coming together.
We have been spending most of our time lately in Mosquito Lagoon just to the south of Daytona Beach. The water clarity has been good for sight fishing and the bite has been good too. We’ve been catching a few trout but mostly redfish and black drum on spin and fly tackle.
The Daytona Beach area is entering its spring time pattern early this year with a little activity from snook and reds starting to get going. As water temperatures react to the warmer winter we have been having, bait will start to move more and this area will only get better.
