Fishing in New Smyrna Beach

 New Smyrna beach is the northern gateway to the Mosquito Lagoon. Redfish,Speckled Seatrout and Snook are caught year round in ​New Smyrna Beach. Summer months you can also have a chance at catching a Tarpon, as the Tarpon migrate we have a couple months to catch tarpon from 10-150 lbs!! 

 A typical day fishing in New Smyrna Beach can be dock fishing to fishing around oyster beds or hidden grass flats for redfish, speckled trout and snook.

 New Smyrna Beach fishing charters are for anglers of all ages and skill levels. Light spin tackle and fly fishing are some of the best ways to fish the backwaters of New Smyrna Beach and Ponce Inlet. 

Capt. Tony uses the finest spin and fly tackle available and uses the best bait available to ensure your fishing charter is a success!!

New Smyrna beach Fishing

 New Smyrna is World Famous for Trophy Redfish and Speckled Sea trout. Trophy redfish from 20+ pounds spend most of their lives in the ​Mosquito LagoonRedfish can be caught year round in the mosquito lagoon. Winter months in the lagoon produce gin clear water and low water conditions which make the Mosquito Lagoon ​redfish school up into schools of 50-300 redfish. Summer months the redfish are found up super shallow early cruising around in the seagrass eating crustaceans, making it perfect for flyfishing and throwing lures. Late winter and most of the summer is the best time to target Bull redfish in the Mosquito Lagoon. Bull redfish start returning to shallow water soon after they spawn from August through November, and they are hungry when they get back to their shallow homes..

A typical summer day in the Mosquito Lagoon will produce catches of Seatrout, redfish and snook. Many grand slams are caught in the summer months!!

 Spring in the Mosquito Lagoon​ is the time to catch a true Gator trout, trout over 5lbs in the lagoon are called Gator trout and are true trophy fish!! Trophy speckled trout can be caught by fly, lure or my favorite way live bait!!

​New Smyrna Beach and The Mosquito Lagoon are a great place to make memories that last a lifetime.
