As we transition into the “winter” months here along the coast of east central Florida, great fishing opportunities remain strong! Our winters can be chilly some days, but we can also have extremely pleasant conditions to fish on many other. The fish bite either way!
Nearshore fishing off Daytona Beach, Ponce Inlet and New Smyrna Beach can be a lot of fun with triple tail and cobia making their migrations to avoid cooler temperatures in more northerly waters. Finding the right days with the right sea conditions between front with strong north winds can be tricky, but when it’s good, it’s great.
The bull redfish bite continues to be strong with many anglers catching some great fish over the last couple weeks. As we progress into the cooler portion of winter, these fish, along with the snook, will begin to move to areas they prefer to overwinter.
Back country fishing in Mosquito Lagoon and other areas will start to be a good option again as winter brings cooler temperatures and low, clear water. Sight fishing for 4-8lb redfish on fly and light tackle is one of the other highlights of this time of year.
Get away from the cold and come join us for this portion of our year round fishery!
