New Smyrna Beach Fishing Charters
April has been a rather unpredictable month when it comes to weather around New Smyrna Beach, but thankfully the fishing has been much more predictable. We have had windy and cloudy days more days than we haven’t, but that hasn’t stopped us from having some really good catching. This unpredictable weather pattern will settle over the coming weeks as we enter May and our summer time calm weather period.
The fishing in Mosquito Lagoon on the south side of New Smyrna Beach continues to be our primary focus. We have had some fun days sight fishing in the clear water that’s in most areas of the lagoon. Big reds, sea trout, black drum and some snook have been around in many areas. Fly and light tackle are both great methods for targeting these fish.
The Ponce Inlet and New Smyrna Beach areas are entering their prime season and we will be targeting the warm water species very soon including tarpon, snook, false albacore tuna and big jack crevalle. These species are coming into season as we enter summertime and get the calm conditions it brings. We will also have some great opportunities at big redfish on many days as well.
