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

March 2018 has brought winter back to East Central Florida, nights in the 40's and upper 30's most of the month, water temperatures dropping back to 58' to 60' after a warm Feb had water temps up to 72', so a confused pattern of a spring like Feb then a winter like March has made for interesting but good fishing  and catching here at Mosquito Lasgoon and the Indian River backcountry., catching schooling Bluefish, Pompano, Jack Crevalle and over sized Ladyfish, Black Drum and Seatyrout are becoming more widespread through the back waters after spending the winter in the deep holes and channels, small schools of Redfish are in the shallows sunning on the chilly days. With the cold water back again I have been fishing a mix of my winter and spring patterns and holes. Dropping live shrimp and 3" swim tails into the holes. This has been a great season for Black Drum here in the back waters, young Logan from Orlando with the best Drum on a trip with his dad and friends with several Drum caught this trip...............

Rusty from Indianapolis was out with me on a 2 boat Mosquito Lagoon charterwith my friend Capt Tony and his boat, we got on a school of Redfish at a shallow flat and sight fished a couple Reds...........

We were catching a bunch of smaller runt Redfish on the edge ofa Lagoon drop off when Rusty hooked a good Black Drum.................

Spring is known for Jack Crevalle here in the backcountry after spending the winter in south Florida, they move back north after the waters warm, Griffin with a good Jack..............

Shovelnose Hammerhead Sharks are also on the spring menu, long time client Al from Canada with a fun one ...............

With the cold water holding on late this year the Sheepshead have been biting good, young Andrew with a nice one.............
