Summer has arrived in the New Smyrna Beach area and one of our most fun seasons of fishing is upon us. With a number of options for fishing, we take full advantage of the season and do a lot of both inshore and nearshore fishing. Warm weather and calm conditions most days really make for a great time to fish.
Around New Smyrna Beach and Ponce Inlet, some of our favorite species have arrived and are beginning to give us opportunities at catching them. This includes tarpon, false albacore tuna, and bigger jack crevalle. These fish all pull very hard and are first class game fish that are sure to put a smile on any anglers face. We have several months of these species ahead of us and I couldn’t be more thankful that they are back on our to do list. We have also been catching some nice redfish and snook as well around these areas so we have a good game plan to do multiple things in most days.
Mosquito Lagoon, our flats fishing estuary on the south end of New Smyrna Beach, continues to look good for sight fishing shallow flats for redfish, sea trout and black drum. The water has stayed nice and clear this year and we have seen a lot of sea grass growth. All this sets us up for some great flats fishing for our shallow water species with both fly and light tackle spin. This is personally some of my favorite fishing and I truly enjoy sharing the experience of exploring this remote area with my clients.
Summer months get busy quickly so be sure to book ASAP to get the dates you want!
