Winter is trying to show itself here in Florida,with each passing cold front he water clears and the fish go crazy!! On the few days following a good cold front you  can expect windy clear conditions with the fish chewing good!! As soon as the wind lays down the redfish are tailing in big groups eager to eat your well placed bait!!

 Large gator trout are in super shallow water and are a blast on light tackle!

Fishing has been really good since Irma raised and cleaned the Mosquito lagoon water.  Smaller slot sized trout can be caught in good numbers in the troughs just off the flat, 
  The Mosquito lagoon and New Smyrna beach fishing is the place to fish in East central Florida.

 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 (15-20in) 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!!

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 closed but still catching!!

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!!!
