  1. Is a fun summer here on the Indian River at New Smyrna and Daytona Beach in the backwaters of Mosquito Lagoon, summer catching has many different species with my style of variety fishing, Speckled Trout, Snook, Black Drum, Redfish, Mangrove Snapper, Jack Crevalle, Ladyfish, Whiting, also “lesser fish” like Silver Trout, Lane Snapper, Croakers and others. Mornings are the usual for summer trips, before the heat and possible afternoon rain showers during this our rainy season. Fall will be here before we know it, I am looking forward to that after a long Florida summer, Joe from Nebraska with a good Black Drum a fun battle on light tackle …………… An occasional small Permit has been the normal for a few years now in the back country, young Lawson from Georgia had a good tussle with this one on my light tackle ……………..

  2. Schools out and summer 2021 is here, warm water, beautiful mornings with cool air for an hour or 2 before it warms up for the day, the summer pattern for fishing is usually a better bite earlier in the morning and slowing as the sun gets higher in the sky, catching more different species this time of year in the backwaters of East Central Florida, including Pompano and Permit, Lane and Mutton Snapper, Silver Trout and Weakfish, are some the fish we catch here in summer that are not here other times of year. All the resident year round here too, Seatrout, Redfish, Snook, Black Drum, Jack Crevalle, Ladyfish and others. Best summer baits in the backcountry for variety catching, shrimp, live bait fish, and small lures, some fish feed on the surface early but most go deep as the sun gets higher. Longtime repeat client Greyson from Flagler caught and released a great Black Drum off the bottom in a deep spot …………… Young Brandon from West Virginia had a fun battle with a good little Permit on his first trip with me along with his family also catching several more species on a fun trip ………………..

  3. Summer 2021 is arriving on the water here in East Central Florida, water temperatures have risen into the mid 70’s, summer baitfish like mullet are arriving, warm water fish species starting to be caught, morning surface activity with gamefish hitting bait and shrimp early morning making for fun sight catching, Jack Crevalle, Ladyfish and Bluefish can be instantly hooked after casting into the white water attacks. With summer’s warmer weather, earlier morning starts are best with fish feeding at sunrise and usually slowing down during middle day. Black Drum are one of our usual target fish in the backcountry here at Mosquito Lagoon and New Smyrna Beach, found on the bottom of deeper channels and holes looking for shrimp and crabs, also a few Redfish, Seatrout, and Snook will pick up our baits. Repeat father and daughter clients from Atlanta were out with me again recently on a good catching trip, young Kiya caught several good fish, including this great size Redfish we did a Photo and Release ……………… ……….we also got a few good Black Drum, dad Sam with one of them before it’s release for future breeding and catching ………………… Another long time repeat client Ralph from New Smyrna out with his son who was visiting from up north caught some good ones like this fun Redfish ………….. ………..and also an unusual catch for these waters, Ralph with a hard fighting Permit …………… Benito from Orlando, also a long time regular with me caught a very nice Black Drum ……………...

  4. Spring has sprung here in East Central Florida, plenty of 80’ days, but still with cool mornings, our water temperatures have been swinging between the mid 60’s and mid 70’s the last few weeks as we transition away from winter. Schooling baitfish and inshore gamefish is the usual pattern for early spring here, they have spent the winter further south and now swim north following the rising sea temperature. Baitfish as glass minnows, mullet and pilchards, game fish on their tail as Bluefish, Jack Crevalle and Ladyfish. Local resident fish as in Seatrout, Black Drum, Redfish, Snook and others start moving about and looking for food more as the temperatures rise after a winter of chilly water temps as low as the lower 50’s this year. It has been a bit of a pendulum swing through the transition, with warm periods then chilly once again, water temps shifting 10 plus degrees from one week to the next, but as calendar spring arrives now the warm pattern will set in in to stay for the rest of the year till next winter. Black Drum have been one of the more consistent good rod benders, lots of little ones 1 to 2 lbs. up to good back waters size of 5 to 8 lbs. Long time regular client Matt from Ormond Beach Florida caught a few good ones on his recent trip with his dad Dr Ed ………………. Another long time regular client Darin from Kansas City caught a good backcountry Drum along with many other species along the way fishing the winter holes ……………….. ………….including a fun size Redfish off a back water drop off ……………….. ………. Darin’s fishing partner Steve also shows off a good Drum, one of several they caught on this afternoon charter ……………. Another fun size little Redfish caught by Cassidy here from Denver Colorado out on a family charter …………….

  5. We have had a nice chilly winter so far in East Central Florida, as the water temperature dropped into the 50’s F, the water became very clear, is great to see down into the water 6 feet deep showing the drop offs and holes. Our winter cold water pattern is a bit different than the rest of the year, fish can be concentrated more, both in deep spots, and also on shallow flats which are warmed by sun shine. Down in the winter holes can be Sheepshead, Black Drum, Seatrout, Mangrove Snapper and others, in the shallows can be Redfish, Snook, Seatrout, can also catch fish on the drop offs, in winter, schooling Bluefish can be near deeper water with tidal currents. Black Drum are a usual target fish in the Mosquito Lagoon backwaters, most are small to medium size as far as Drum go, first time client Georgia out with her husband caught some fun size Black Drum out with me ………….. Kimberley from South Carolina also got a nice size Drum out of a deeper hole on a recent trip into the backcountry …………… You never know when a surprise catch will come to the boat, this time Chris from Asheville, North Carolina was catching a couple Pompano when a pomp cousin bent his rod and turned into a nice Permit ………….. Joey from Pennsylvania got a kick out of catching a fun little Shovelnose Hammerhead Shark, a good battle on my little backwaters spinning rod …………….. Not many Jack Crevalle are here in winter as they move further south once the water gets cold, big schools of them will return in spring as the northward migration begins with warming water, but a few are here even in winter, Jon from Indianapolis with a fun size Crevalle …………….

  6. Winter has set in with the first cold snap of the season in East Central Florida, frost on my yard is a sure sign, water temperatures reaching down into the 50’s begins the true winter pattern. Fish be come less scattered and more concentrated, some in the deeper holes and channels, some on the flats when the sun shines and warms the shallow water. Searching skinny water for Redfish and Seatrout is a winter favorite here at Mosquito Lagoon, the holes, sloughs and channels can hold Black drum, Sheepshead, Whiting, and more. If it doesn’t get too cold, the Snook will continue to feed also on drop offs and close to structure in the back country. Clearer water means lighter stealthy rigs to hide it from the target fish. A few days ago Jeff from Kentucky out with me on a nice size Black Drum caught off the bottom of a deep cold water hole ……………. We can at any time catch surprise fish in the back waters, at times can be Sharks, uncommon species of Snapper, we’ve even caught a few Bonefish on my boat in the last few years, one surprise species that we’ve caught quite a few of now days are Permit, normally a tropical species now being caught here and there up here closer to north Florida, here I’m modeling one caught recently by a client ………….. Black Drum are one of the regular catches of good quality fish here in the back country, any where in size from baby 1 lb. fish up to at 10 lbs on occasion, here Beau from Osteen Florida with a fun one ………… Long time regular client Bonnie from Iowa always seem to catch a photo fish or 2 on their annual trip, a fun fighting size Jack Crevalle in this pic ………….

  7. Long awaited cooler weather has come to East Central Florida with the arrival of November, water temps finally lower after a long summer, the fall migration of fish has been moving through the area as they work their way south, schools of Jack Crevalle, Ladyfish and Bluefish, attacking the migratory finger mullet on the surface with white water strikes showing the way to sight casting hook ups with lures or bait and drag pulling bent rods. Water levels also beginning to drop after flood levels of late summer following much rainfall we have had this year. All the different species of our resident inshore saltwater fish are caught here in the north Mosquito Lagoon and Indian River at New Smyrna Beach, including Seatrout, Snook, Redfish, Sheepshead and more. Black Drum are a staple species in the holes, back creeks and channels, here is Noah from Orlando out with me on a recent trip which landed many different fish including a few good Drum ………………. Emily and family here visiting from Alaska out with me caught several top water surface striking Jack Crevalle up to about 5 lbs ……………… Local New Smyrna Beach resident Bob caught a fun size Shovelnose Shark on light tackle for a good battle … Another local Glen from Ormond Beach Florida got in on the sight fishing fun on Jack Crevalle action with schools attacking baitfish on the surface all around us all morning ………….

  8. Fall 2020 is just around the corner after a long Florida summer, starting to see to first early signs of autumn on the coastal saltwater intracoastal waterway, bait fish schools arriving from the north with schooling Jack Crevalle surface attacking with white water sight fishing action. Temperatures, air or water won’t start to drop for a few weeks yet as early fall pattern is still a warm one, end of summer melds together with early fall, other changes include the water and wading bird migration begins as well as other inshore saltwater schooling game fish, including Bluefish, Pompano, Ladyfish, and Tarpon. Fall is also spawning season for the big Redfish at our nearby Ponce deLeon Inlet after spending the summer prowling the deeper channel areas of the intracoastal Indian River here at New Smyrna Beach and Edgewater. Jacques of Edgewater out with me recently caught one of those big ICW Reds, a 42” fish, after a quick picture and release she swam off strong ……………. Little Adrianna from Indianapolis on on a trip with her family with me had a great time and great photo with a fun size Jack Crevalle from surface striking and sight casting schooling fish ……………… We catch Black Drum here in the backcountry every season of the year, fun hard fighters, most of the back water Drum are up to 5 lb fish, Trish from Colorado caught and released a fun size one ……………….

  9. Summer of 2020 continues with a fair number of charters, not the usual busy vacation season as many are suspending vacations this year, some visitors coming to the area as well as locals doing fishing trips. Fishing remains normal this summer even though the world is anything but normal this year. Lots of variety catching on my backwater lagoon trips, beautiful mornings, calm conditions, light coolness in the air before the afternoon heat comes. Big numbers of Mangrove Snapper and Whiting this summer, a few Seatrout, Redfish, Snook, Black Drum, Jack Crevalle, Ladyfish, Pompano and always some surprise catches. With the right tide and conditions bull Redfish are along the intracoastal waterway channel through the area during summer, George from Chicago got to experience just such a moment, hooking up and landing this jumbo 48” Redfish ………………. Normal size Reds are also always a lagoon target fish, taking lures or live bait on drop offs, flats, and near oyster bars, long time client Joe from Tampa caught a beautiful multi spot Redfish in a backcountry creek …………. Spotted Seatrout are a year round catch here in the Mosquito Lagoon Backcountry, at times lots of school size fish as well as larger adult Trout commonly called Specks, young Lauren from Orlando caught this beauty out with me on a recent Lagoon trip …………..

  10. Summer 2020 is here with beautiful calm mornings, the waters surface alive with baitfish in the early morning, game fish can also be present, striking the bait from below, making for great sight catching opportunities. Open water surface activity with smaller fish can be Seatrout, Jack Crevalle or Ladyfish, larger fish at times on the surface can be Tarpon or bull Redfish. The smaller game fish will take lures, live shrimp and little bait fish, best baits for large surface fish are blue crabs or bigger bait fish. Targeting the variety of different back waters species where you never know what you’ll catch next, I use light tackle with natural baits and small sub surface lures, casting to underwater drop offs, points, creek mouths, and submerged creek beds, most trips catching 10 or more different species. Spotted Seatrout are one of the usual Lagoon backcountry catches, long time repeat client Steve from Tennessee with a nice Speck on a recent trip ………… Another regular guest along with his dad, young Grant from Kentucky with a nice Snook caught off the edge of an oyster bar with little Mangrove Trees growing on the shells …………… Nick from Ft Lauderdale and his uncle were here staying at a local B and B at New Smyrna on the intracoastal waterway, I picked them up at the B and B’s dock and off we went into the backcountry, catching a bunch of different species along with a nice Snook for Nick ………….

  11. We continue to social distance here in East Central Florida, very few visitors coming to town, so in turn very few charters the last several weeks. Still making my monthly fishing report with information from my last several charters before the shut down began. In spring the first of the migratory species make their way north along the east coast of Florida after spending the winter further south, schooling inshore coastal migrating fish include Bluefish, Jack Crevalle, Ladyfish, Pompano, Spanish Mackerel, they travel in schools following the temperature increase, so the exact timing is different each year. One of the most exciting of the sub tropical species which come north in spring are Tarpon, occasional full grown Silver Kings from 50 to 100 lbs., but most of the intracoastal fish are younger in the 10 to 30 lb. Range. Denton and friends from Eustis, FL were out with me catching many different backcountry species when this 38” Tarpon crashed the party and was landed after a good fight …………... On another recent trip Rudy was throwing an artificial soft plastic and caught a fun size Snook with a few jumps during the battle …………… Ashley from Minnesota caught a nice Pompano along with Jack Crevalle and other fish species on a mixed bag variety trip in the back waters …………….

  12. Spring 2020 has arrived to East Central Florida fishing waters, air temps in the 80’s, water temps up to the 70’s, more baitfish schools appearing on the waters surface with returning game fish like Jack Crevalle, Bluefish and Ladyfish striking the top water bait in early morning. Spring run shrimp are also coming through with the tide, down the intracoastal channel as well as the in the backcountry creeks and back channels. Seatrout, Redfish and Snook getting more active with warming water, ready to ambush bait fish, shrimp and artificial lures in the back waters. Black Drum are spreading through the back water holes and channels, small baby ones as well as fun catching sizes up to about 5 lbs like this one Jim from New Jersey caught with me recently …………… Al from The Villages, Florida was out with me recently along with a few friends visiting this winter from up north, this fun size Shark gave him a great light tackle battle …………… Snook are always a welcome catch, here in the saltwater estuary which is a nursery of all the different species of coastal fish we have lots of baby Snook hiding in the cover of Mangrove roots and dock pilings, young Luca from Boston got a nice size linesider with me …………... Florida Pompano have become more of a regular catch on this part of the Atlantic east coast in the intracoastal waterway the last few years, including many good size ones up to about 18”, Rob from St. Louis with a nice pomp ………………. Normal Redfish have 1 spot on each side of the tail, but some individual Reds have extra spots like this small pretty one caught and released by my long time regular client Mike from Mt. Dora, FL………… Jack Crevalle are a regular catch here in Florida’s coastal waters, sight fishing them is great fun as they regularly feed on surface bait fish and shrimp with white water strikes to cast to for a fast hook up, young Jackson from Daytona Beach caught this one from a small school on a surface attack ………..

  13. Water temperatures have ranged from the mid 50’s to the upper 60’s as we have had a chilly week then a warm week through the winter, colder water schools up the fish while mild temps spread out the fish. Winter fish like Sheepshead and Bluefish are usually every trip catches here in the backcountry, and year around fish also, Redfish, Snook, Seatrout, Black Drum, Mangrove Snapper, and more. During the warmer weeks we see signs of early spring, tiny schools of tiny newly hatched fish hiding around the Mangrove roots, and a few spring fish biting like Spanish Mackerel, Jacks and Ladyfish. Water level is down low as is normal by late winter with prevailing north and west winds after the cold fronts and the dry season we are in now. A good recent trip with lots of variety and repeat clients from Indiana had a few good Trout, Black Drum and the best Redfish caught by Courtney …………… Central Florida local Rey from Sanford had a fun catching trip including a nice size Snook caught on artificial ………………….

  14. Winter 2020 is here with chilly water, regular “Florida” cold fronts coming through followed by north and west winds lowering our water levels and making the water nice and clear. East Central Florida winter conditions range from mild to chilly, during mild periods fish are more spread out through the backcountry along drop offs, in channels and in holes, a colder period after a strong cold front concentrates the fish more in a tighter schooling pattern. A couple cold water fish we are catching in winter are Bluefish and Sheepshead in addition to all the resident species which we catch year round, including Seatrout, Redfish, Snook, Black Drum, Mangrove Snapper and more. Artificial lures become a better bet with clear water, the fish in the back channels can see it from a longer distance making lures more effective than in our cloudy water of summer. Repeat client Josh from Australia and now Orlando caught this beautiful 30” Redfish on one of his “Aussie” soft plastics off a back country drop off at our first stop this morning …………….. I even get to catch a fish every now and then, like this pretty Spotted Seatrout I got on a soft plastic lure during one of those chilly Florida winter mornings …………… Florida Pompano are a less common member of the Atlantic Jack family which happen to be very good eating as well as super hard fighters as are all Jacks, young Matthew from Ohio with a beauty he caught with me recently …………… Black Drum are a year around staple fish here in the back waters, most are school size ranging from 1 to 5 lbs. Always hard fighters with a spirited battle on light tackle for even the modest sized ones. Jackson from Ohio had a fun time with this one ………………… Little Amelia was out with her family with me on a recent trip, catching many different backcountry species as usual including a few good Pompano …………….

  15. November is the transition month leaving our short fall behind us moving towards a Florida winter fishing pattern, however it has been a mild autumn so far with water temperatures still pretty warm, extending fall fishing. Baitfish schools still in the area, schools of migratory inshore gamefish Jack Crevalle and Ladyfish still prowling the backwaters, most resident fish are still in the warmer water scattered pattern. This is a good time of year for better Mangrove Snapper in the intracoastal waterway after they have grown all year with lots of summer food and getting bigger before heading off shore into the ocean. As the water temperatures start to drop soon the Seatrout, Redfish, Black Drum and Snook will begin to school up together into their winter schools in holes, sloughs, and on the flats on sunny chilly days. Fall has been the Redfish spawning time in deeper water along the channel, some also come into the backwaters as Bill from Orlando found with me landing a big oversize Redfish ………………… Jack Crevalle are one of our dependable fun hard pulling inshore game fish, in the fall, schools of Jacks are widespread in the backwaters, when conditions are right, white water striking gives away their location as they attack bait fish, many of these are 3 to 5 lb fish, great fun for sight casting and fun fights, Austin and friends from California caught some of those 5 pounders ………… Longtime regular clients from Iowa out again on their fall charter caught many different species as usual, including Seatrout, Jacks, Ladyfish, Mangrove Snapper, Whiting and others, Bonnie had the biggest of the morning a fun Shovelnose Shark on light tackle ……………. Snook have been regular catches again here in the backwaters including Edgewater Backcountry and Mosquito Lagoon, many in this area are small to medium size which are fun on light tackle, repeat client Ken from Ohio with a fun little linesider ………. Nick from Ormond Beach with another good size backcountry Jack Crevalle …………….. School size Black Drum are also a most every trip catch in the back channels and holes, Sean from Melbourne with one of the Drum caught on his and friends trip ………………...
