New Smyrna Beach Orlando Daytona Mosquito Lagoon Backcountry
Water temperatures are finally back to normal for April after a back and forth winter / spring pattern with cold January, warm February, and back to cold March. Fish patterns were confused with an early start to the coastal migrations, then the cold March halted the spring movements, to continue again during April. Good news so far on water quality in my area, clear to normal water conditions with continuing help by our close location to Ponce Inlet and daily tidal influx of sea water. As well as schooling near coastal fish moving in to the Intracoastal Waterway being the Indian River here at New Smyrna Beach, Edgewater, and the north Mosquito Lagoon. We had a good Black Drum season all through the winter and spring with back water fish of 5 lbs down to little ones, they were along the channels and sloughs as well in in holes. Shrimp being my usual daily natural bait, which the Drum are happy to eat. On my mixed bag variety backcountry trips we also usually catch many different species on every trip, which can include Seatrout, Redfish, Snook, Drum, Sheepshead, Whiting, Bluefish, Jack Crevalle, Ladyfish, and always some surprise catches. Young Parker was the winner of big fish on a trip with his family and* friends.....................
Repeat client Dr Leonard from Canada did a couple fly fishing trips with me, catching a bunch of Trout and Ladyfish, including a 23" Speckled Trout on a "Savedow Special" fly which I tie, on a sink tip fly line for fishing the drop offs and channels in the back country......................
For a break, tossing a few shrimp on light tackle spin, in between fly casting, Dr. L caught some of the other usual species too, Jacks, Blues and a nice Snook out of some Mangrove Roots...............
First time client Cameron from Tennessee out on an afternoon trip also caught a good Black Drum .
A group of friends from Salt Lake City came out on a spring time afternoon trip and Gabby got big fish with a nice Black Drum ..
Another repeat client, Gerry from Kentucky came with his family again this year, out on a fun backcountry trip, including some good Seatrout ..
Caleb was all smiles with his Black Drum on light tackle after a good battle .
Spring is always full of many good Jack Crevalle for rod bending fun, Greyson out again with family and friends on another trip with me ..

Cool pics Capt Mike. They brought back boyhood memories of when we had a house on the Indian River south of Mosquito Lagoon next door to Lopez fish camp. I spent many days and nights on the river in those days but haven't been there since the 70s. Looks like the fishing is still good!
