Hi everyone, and thank you for reading. This past few weeks have been challenging to say the least high pressure ridge setting over us every few days bringing very windy conditions along with rain . On the flip side getting out if you can time it right have been big payoffs . Since there hasn’t been much opportunity for fisherman to get out the big ones are stacked on the reefs from 60ft to 130ft .
Big snapper, grouper, flounder, big amberjack and cobia are all there. The water temps have quickly rising to warmer than average this time of year out of ponce inlet, Daytona Beach . This quick change could bring things in full swing with the cobia run,or could also make for a quik spring run and if the winds stay strong it might not give us much opportunity to target these awesome fish. It still doesnt mean there isn’t lots other great fishing opportunity, the redfish and trout fishing in mosquito lagoon remain strong along with the creeks in the northern end of New Smyrna Beach and Spruce creek in Daytona Beach. Try using small finger mullet or manhadden this will give better opportunity for fishermen to catch better quality fish in the creeks and mouth openings of these creeks, fishing with shrimp alot of times means little fish pecking away at your bait .
Now shrimp freelined in thebackwaters of mosquito lagoon have been my favorite in waters a foot or less especially grass flats ,finding fish is the key. Also in most areas of the lagoon is hard to get out of the wind but all the creeks in New Smyrna and Edgewater Florida are great out of the wind spots for great inshore fishing, lately Ive been taking clients in this area and producing some nice redfish along with trout in the holes and flounder along the dropoffs using a small splitshot on the line is usually sufficent for this area to fish with a #2 or #3 circle hook .
Daytona Beach Fishing is just going to keep getting better now with the warmup that is quickly warming things up. Take a trip with me and I will put you on some of the best fishing central Florida has to offer weather your wanting offshore fishing or inshore backwater fishing I have the gear and boats to get you there also for those freshwater fishermen I know exactly were to catch big trophy bass, I have it covered, you want results hire an expert that knows were the fish are and how to catch them.
Once agin thanks for reading tight lines people.
