Mosquito Lagoon, Florida - Saltwater Fishing Report
Mosquito Lagoon, New Smyrna Beach, Daytona Beach

Summer 2018 continues to be productive and fun fishing and catching in the Indian River and Mosquito Lagoon backcountry here at the New Smyrna Beach Florida area, from the intracoastal backwaters with it’s maze of channels, creeks and islands to the flats on the south end of my area. As late summer is creeping in, the larger “bull” Redfish begin to gather at times in the ICW channel and near close by Ponce Inlet, by fall and the spawn the big Reds group up around the inlet area. On the right tide and location, a few can be caught as they are looking for baitfish and drifting blue crabs on the surface, most of the fish are 20 to 30 lbs. which is about 38” to 45”. On a recent “right” morning, referred new clients Rick and sons from Georgia were treated to a couple big fish on our trip which also included some mixed bag action with Seatrout, Snapper, Jacks Crevalle, Ladyfish and more. Timothy landed a 44” Redfish on a live blue crab, this is a 30lb. fish ………………

…………..brother Samuel was next up with this 38” Red which also bit a crab…………………..

Sight fishing the flats at Mosquito Lagoon is always a fun but challenging trip, Matt from Philadelphia had it on his bucket list and got to experience our encounter with several tailing Redfish in very shallow water at sunrise and was able to connect with this 27” Red………………..

Sharks are always the star of the show for freshwater fishermen who only fish the salt on special occasions, Josh from Tennessee had an epic battle on one of my light tackle spinning rods and landed this 40” Shovelnose Hammerhead for a quick photo before release………………..

It has been a good year for Black Drum here in my back water area with catches on many of my trips through all of 2018, new local clients Don and Virgil had a double hookup and landing of this pair of drum ……………

Young Katie from Georgia caught a nice Redfish while out with her family on a mixed bag variety trip also catching all the different species along the way ……………………

Kyle from North Carolina came on a trip with a bunch of buddies visiting Orlando, several Black Drum caught in addition to the usual bunch of different types of fish too …………………..
