Even though we are mid summer, the patterns that will keep us hooked up through fall are starting to fall into place, no pun intended.
Nearshore fishing for tarpon, false albacore tuna and sharks off Ponce Inlet, Daytona Beach and New Smyrna Beach has been good and will continue to be good in the coming weeks.
Big redfish have been on and off but the last week has been pretty good and the fishing for these should only get better as we continue through the summer.
Sight fishing with fly and spin tackle in Mosquito Lagoon has remained a fun option with decent to good water clarity.

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, sharks, false albacore and big jacks of the Daytona Beach and New Smyrna Beach coastlines. We have hooked some big fish out there lately and the conditions should stay stable for some time.
Fly and spin fishing in Mosquito Lagoon remains an option. We have had some good grass growth this year in some areas and the fishing has reflected that.
Inshore fishing in the Ponce Inlet area will remain strong 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.
Mid summer is here and the fishing that comes with it is happening now. Big tarpon, big reds, big sharks, false albacore along with snook and big jacks on the right days make this a fun time of year to fish.
July and August offer some of the calmest weather conditions of the year allowing us to target nearshore species on most days. Cruising up and down both Daytona Beach and New Smyrna Beach can produce a variety of opportunities.
Inshore fishing in the Ponce Inlet and Mosquito Lagoon areas has been good for bull redfish and some tarpon. When the tides and conditions are right, big snook can be a fun target as well. Sight fishing remains an option for fly anglers in Mosquito Lagoon.
