Fishing Report

June 2022  

Summer is in the air and croakers are here!! Croakers are one of the best baits

for Sea trout, snook and redfish!! As the lagoon waters dirty baits that make noise are they!! 

Redfish still remain schooled up due to the water staying super low.

Snook are in and chewing the lagoon as water temps are on the rise.

Black Drum are schooled up and eating well!


The Mosquito lagoon and New Smyrna beach fishing is the place to fish in East central Florida. You can fish the flats of the Mosquito lagoon and in minutes fish the backwaters of New Smyrna beach and Ponce Inlet.

 If catching good numbers of redfish is your idea of fun then this is the time of year for you!! Redfish schools are abundant in New Smyrna beach and the Mosquito lagoon! Along with plenty of reds cruising shorelines looking for a snack!
Trophy speckled sea trout are my favorite challenge this time of year, nothing makes my leg's shake more than a 8+ lb trout laying in a pothole offering an angler a great chance at a trophy of a lifetime.
Slot sized (15-19in) are also plentiful in the lagoon
and New Smyrna Beach.
There is nothing more heart pounding than seeing a trophy trout explode on a live mullet!! Or slam a croaker, sometimes it will hurt your wrist!!

Snook are also back since the freeze of 09-10.
And catches are great as snook fight like a bass on steroids and will test your tackle and angling skills!!
Snook season is open!!!

Black drum are every where!!! Pretty amazing sight when 100+ fish stop and tail 10 ft from the bow of the boat. Average fish is from 6-12lb's and pull hard!!

Book your trip of a lifetime!!!
