The dog days of summer roll on as we dodge the occasional rain shower and catch big fish!
Between now and the end of August, we get some of the calmest ocean conditions of the year. These calm seas allow us to spend time nearshore searching for tarpon, false albacore, sharks and big jacks off the Ponce Inlet area. We have hooked some nice fish out there lately and the conditions should stay stable for some time as long as we don’t have any tropical systems in the area.
Fly and spin fishing in Mosquito Lagoon remains an option. We have had some good grass growth this year in many areas and the fishing has reflected that.
Inshore fishing in the New Smyrna Beach area will remain a good option for the next 6 weeks through the beginning of our fall season. Big redfish are great targets this time of year to compliment some nearshore fishing, and we have been catching some nice snook as well.
