I suppose I spoke too soon about no hurricanes in my last report, because this past week was a reminder of what hurricane season can bring for Florida. Despite the destruction in other parts of the state, our area faired well over all and the fishing has been good this week.
In the inlet area in New Smyrna Beach, we have been catching some nice reds in the 35”-45” size range with some days being really productive. It’s that time of year and thankfully the fish have stayed in the area through the weather we had during the storm. There are a few snook and tarpon around but the storm impacted them a bit more than the reds, but things should stabilize soon with those species.
To the south of Ponce Inlet down in Mosquito Lagoon, we have had some pretty good sight fishing but we will need the post hurricane water levels to drop more before we really get back to fishing down there. That should happen over the next week or two.
