And so yet another change of seasons begins as we enter spring. Cardinals calling in the upland islands, white butterflies floating across the bow, and comfortable temperatures in the low 80’s are all a signal that spring has sprung. It’s the beginning of another cycle of our yearly rhythm of fishing opportunities.
Inshore fishing can be a lot of fun in spring with possibilities at large redfish, snook and black drum. In the Ponce Inlet, New Smyrna Beach, and Daytona Beach areas, these species will keep our rods bent in the coming weeks.
Nearshore fishing off Daytona Beach and New Smyrna Beach will enter its warm months season with opportunities at cobia in the next few weeks, followed by the arrival of tarpon in late April and May. Big jack crevalle will make an appearance at some point as well.
Inshore fishing in Mosquito Lagoon is still producing fun sight fishing opportunities for fly and light tackle spin anglers. Close quarter shots at reds and trout are exciting for any angler! The fish are challenging so bring your A-game but the reward is nothing short of spectacular.
