Winter seemed to be rather brief this year with a few days close to 80 degrees last week and more warm weather in the forecast. Low humidity and “just right” temperatures sure do make it comfortable to be outside this time of year!
We have been mainly focusing on light tackle and fly fishing in Mosquito Lagoon the past few weeks as that’s been where the better fishing has occurred. Water clarity and fish activity continue to make it a good option to sight fish for 4-8lb redfish, black drum, and sea trout.
Fishing around Ponce Inlet, New Smyrna Beach, and Daytona Beach for big redfish and black drum can be variable this time of year but it should pick up rapidly as the warmer temperatures become a steady trend. The patterns of the fish will adjust to this and the days should become consistent soon.
Nearshore fishing off Daytona Beach and New Smyrna Beach is generally more of a summer activity but on the right days we do have opportunities at migratory cobia. This challenging type of sight fishing is a lot of fun when things line up. Spotting the cobia following giant manta rays is a sight to see. Just seeing the rays alone is a great experience!
