Fishing Report

With the month of November brings the beginning of cold fronts to our area which means you will have to pick your days

wisely do to the wind and rain. When the seas and winds lay down and allow you to navigate the inlets here on the east coast you can still find the larger breeder redfish

holding on the rocks of the jetties. I like to throw a live pin fish or mullet with a 1/2oz lead on the bottom. They can also be caught jigging the

bottom with artificial but just be prepared for hang ups there is a lot of debri down there from over the years. With the changing of the wind direction

every couple of days the water level in Edgewater and Mosquito Lagoon is higher than usual but should be dropping in the very near future.

I have been finding the the red fish to be hanging around the oyster bars and points along with cruising the shorelines in the north lagoon.

In the south mosquito Lagoon they can be found holding in the pot holes through out the grass flats.

I like to throw the Aqua Dream Living spoons and soft plastics along with live shrimp,live finger mullet and cut bait all have been creating a great bite.

The trout bite has also been good through out Mosquito Lagoon look for the bait holding

over a mix of grass and pot holes and you will find the trout. I like to use jerk baits, top water plugs and twitch baits but you can

never go wrong with a free lined finger mullet for that trout of a life time. The flounder have also started to move into New Smyrna Beach

and Edgewater, you can target them with a 1/16oz and 1/8oz jig head rigged with soft plastic or live shrimp bounced slowly along

the bottom.We have also had a good number of black drum through out the lagoon system which always make for a great fight. I

have been catching them on a live shrimp rigged tail hooked using a 7" Aqua Dream Seeker rod to get the distance I need with

out spooking the school for multiple hook ups.

Good luck and be safe !
