  1. Winter fishing is coming to central Florida, now still on the warm side with water temperatures in the upper 60’s, so a late fall pattern continues so far, Seatrout are widespread through the backcountry on Mosquito Lagoon and the Indian River here in the New Smyrna Beach area. Still catching lots of different species with 10 to 15 varieties on most back water trips, in addition the Trout, we are landing Redfish, Snook, Sheepshead, Black Drum, Mangrove Snapper, and more. Live shrimp still the best all around bait, as all the different species love them, as the water has been clearing with dropping water temps, sight fishing for flats Redfish with select size shrimp and live finger mullet are always a winter technique. With cooling water more Sheepshead and Drum come to the boat, this fall Pompano and Whiting have been in the backwaters here from their usual surf areas making for good light tackle fun on these species. Kelly caught a good Black Drum out of a deeper backcountry hole on a variety trip with lots of all the usual species also landed……………… Bill and Bruce here visiting from New Jersey out on a fun mixed bag backwaters trip, Bill with one of the better Seatrout caught……………… ……..and also several good Pompano landed on this mornings outing…………………. Repeat client Kevin from Savannah here for a Thanksgiving visit came out with his friends for a flats hunting trip for Redfish, landing just 3 Reds before a cold front arriving thunderstorm shortened our trip, Matt with one of the Reds……………. Sheepshead are a winter/spring staple here, Ken with a nice one from a recent trip………… The backcountry here has many different fun hard fighting game fish species which school in good numbers, including Bluefish, Jack Crevalle, and Ladyfish……………..

  2. Fall fishing patterns have arrived here in Mosquito Lagoon and the Indian River at New Smyrna Beach, big schools of finger mullet cover the waters surface at first light with Jack Crevalle, Ladyfish, and more busting them with white water crashes, casting lures or bait in the mix for a fast hook up. The water level is still high but pretty clear in the backcountry, the first couple seasonal cold fronts arriving to East Central Florida this week, with north winds, night time temps in the 50’s, beginning the process of lowering our water temps as we move towards winter. Cool water patterns emerging in the backcountry like schools of Seatrout bunching up in holes and on drop off edges, also schools of small Redfish beginning to group together, and bigger lagoon Reds will start to school up as water temps drop. Catching here in the backcountry is always a variety of species, lately catches on my trips in addition to the fish already mentioned have included Snook, Snapper, Sheepshead, Black Drum, Flounder, Whiting and Pompano. As always we are also doing some flats fishing, hunting Reds and Trout on the grass flats of Mosquito Lagoon, regular local client Robert was along with me again recently, poling the shallows for sight fishing, always more of a fun but challenging type of fishing, this morning landing several Redfish …… First time client sisters Barbara and Eleanor came on a cool, windy afternoon backcountry charter, we fished holes protected from the breeze catching the usual different species, Barbara with the best fish of the trip a nice Snook…………… John from Nashville set up a trip for him and his friends when they visited the area recently, choosing mixed bag variety fishing for the lots of catching, the fish cooperated well with many different species, including a nice Flounder caught by Reed…………… …...Reed also got the best Trout of the many specks caught…………………. Repeat clients also from Tennessee out on another trip had multiple backcountry slams of smaller size Redfish, Snook, and Seatrout, along with lots of fun Jacks and Ladyfish, dad Randy also caught a couple nice size Black Drum………………. As the last few years have gone on, Snook have been a daily catch here again after the big freeze years back in the early 2010’s was very hard on our central Florida Snook population as Sean found out……………….

  3. All is well here in East Central Florida after Hurricane Irma, the water is high, but is pretty clear following the big east wind pushed in ocean water to the Indian River backcountry and Mosquito Lagoon, the fall mullet run is going on with lots of bait fish schools, inshore game fish moving in on their migration towards the south, Jack Crevalle, Bluefish, Ladyfish, Tarpon in addition to our resident Seatrout, Redfish, Mangrove Snapper, Snook, and more. Fun fishing charters continue, both before and now after the storm, just a couple days before Irma’s arrival, was out on the flats of Mosquito Lagoon with regular client Vic from Orlando on his annual September trip with me, hunting Redfish, poling the grass flats, and catching some Seatrout on live baits off the edges on drop offs, Family friend Angel caught a 25” Red along a scenic old Florida palm tree lined shoreline………………. Vic was quite happy catching Redfish this morning also……………… Son Mikey caught the best Trout of the morning……………… New clients from Indiana and The Villages in Florida came out a few days after the hurricane past through, we started out in the backwaters, light tackle free line fishing, catching a little slower than would be usual with the flood level water and all after the storm, but still catching a bunch of Jack Crevalle, Ladyfish, and Snappers, by late morning we switched tactics to the flats hunting Redfish catching a few spot tails, Denise got a nice Red with an extra spot…………………… Always some surprise catches in the back country, this one a 5.5 lb. Sheepshead caught by Larry, usually a winter catch, this one a summer Sheepy………………..

  11. Springtime backcountry catching is in full swing here at Mosquito Lagoon and Indian River, water temperatures have risen through the 60’s to the low 70’s bringing the migration of game fish through the area, jack crevalle, bluefish, ladyfish, pompano, bait fish like mullet, glass minnows and pilchards. Resident fish seatrout, redfish, sheepshead, snappers, and black drum also feeding on the bait schools and the local shrimp which run here in spring, making a live shrimp hard to beat for a go to bait. Multiple hookups are fun with schooling fish and sometimes surface action with attacks on baitfish and shrimp on the top. Local Linda brought her friends here visiting for spring out with me recently, we had a few good seatrout along with all the other fun species, Linda had the best speck of the morning…… Friend Lori caught the biggest jack crevalle of the trip……………… Last minute trip on a recent afternoon Bryan and friend from Kansas City had lots of fun catching fish species they never caught before including the star of the trip a 5 lb. black drum……………….

  12. Having a fun fall of fishing here on Mosquito Lagoon Florida in November 2013, Redfish and Seatrout catching in the autumn pattern with high water, clear on the grass flats, still a little cloudy in some backcountry areas with a mud bottom. Water temperatures in the middle to upper 60’s, cooling off a little but not yet winter chilly. A few small schools of reds starting to form, but still plenty of single fish. Shoreline areas are still a good bet with the high water, but as of a few days ago noticing slightly lowering water level out on the open lagoon area again making more grass flats a favorable depth of 12” to 20” which is “Redfish depth” in my neighborhood. Still baiting with mullet mostly, throwing topwater lures and weedless jerkbaits in the early morning low light conditions. A recent charter trip with 3 generations from Indiana, grandpa Ken treated son Joe and grandson Danny to fishing with me. All caught some Reds along with Trout, of course young Danny caught the largest Redfish........ And grandpa also caught a nice one. Vic a new Edgewater resident had a great time on a solo trip a couple weeks ago, catching 6 Reds including this 25” spottail. Just a couple days ago I hosted a 2 boat charter with a repeat client and friends out for a bachelor party fishing trip before his friends wedding. On my boat we caught 7 Redfish up to 24” caught by Doug here with his fish. And I got to go fly fishing recently invited by a friend on his boat, after push poling him around for a while it was my turn on the bow, and in short order had a Redfish in front of me, then hooked up on my 6 weight TFO outfit. A beautiful 10 spot fishy. Edgewater backcountry mixed bag fishing is still in fall pattern with lots of variety and fast action from Seatrout, Mangrove Snapper, Sheepshead, Jacks, Ladyfish, and starting to catch some small Redfish in the back waters which will be around through the winter. Most mixed trips we catch 10 or more species usually with some surprises Mixed bag trips are great for kids and family groups wanting some easy fast catching action and great wildlife viewing seeing Dolphins and lots of sea birds up close and personal on every trip.

  13. October 2013 feels great with cooler mornings, nice clear water in the Intracoastal Waterway, and clearing water on the flats of Mosquito Lagoon. Time again for sight fishing Redfish as the water clears. Very high water calls for sight fishing tight to flooded shorelines in the backcountry islands, and over grass flats now flooded which have been almost dry during the low water this past summer. A few small schools of Reds starting to form as the water temperatures cool down and days shorten. Live finger mullet, cut mullet, DOA shrimp and new penny color jerkbaits are my usual fall Redfish baits. Repeat client Russ and his 11 year old daughter Chloe from Orlando came fishing with me recently catching several Redfish and Chloe was trilled to catch her first ever Reds. Regular client Craig also from Orlando brought his sons to fish with me on the flats a couple weeks ago catching 9 Redfish plus a bonus 21” Seatrout. Here is Matthew with his largest Red of the morning. And brother Adam with one of the Redfish he caught on their trip. Edgewater Backcountry mixed bag fishing has been great with the seasonal cooler , clear water the fish have been biting , on a mixed trip a couple mornings ago regular annual clients Jeff and Bonnie from Iowa caught 16 different species of saltwater fish on their trip, including Seatrout, Mangrove Snapper, Sheepshead, Whiting, Pompano, Jacks, Ladyfish, etc, etc. My mixed bag trips are great for kids and family groups wanting some easy fast catching action and great wildlife viewing seeing Dolphins and lots of sea birds up close and personal on most every trip out. This is fun light tackle fishing with live shrimp baits. Regular clients Janet and Teresa from North Carolina had a great time catching lots of Florida fish with me last week on a mixed bag trip, here is Teresa with a 10 lb. Edgewater backcountry Black Drum.

  15. Autumn is getting close as mid September 2013 is here, water temps down a little bit, and starting to clear on the grass flats of Mosquito Lagoon. The mullet run is beginning with schools of finger mullet swimming south down the Indian River channel on their seasonal journey towards the south Florida wintering grounds of all the subtropical coastal fish species. We will be taking advantage of the small mullet by “matching the hatch” using them for Redfish and Seatrout baits during the fall months. Sight fishing will again be part of our routine techniques while flats fishing, as the water continues to clear with lower temperatures. Some of my fun late summer trips include the 7 Redfish morning with Ross, Kyle, and “top rod” Matthew seen here with his 24” Seatrout And showing off his catch of the largest Redfish on the trip at 31.5”. Brad and son Colby from north Florida went with me first week of September catching 8 Redfish including the 30” spot tail caught by 11 year old Colby being his largest lifetime fish so far. A family reunion trip had relatives meeting up from Virginia, Orlando, and Stuart, Florida going on a fun flats trip with me. Sisters Amy and Katie each had the bragging rights by catching the biggest Reds of the trip at 28” and 29”. Very longtime regular client Don from North Carolina did a solo trip last week catching 5 Redfish up to this 29”er and a 22” Seatrout. Edgewater Backcountry mixed bag fishing trips have also been lots of fun and will continue to be through the fall months, a more easy going fishing style, catching high numbers of different saltwater species on light tackle. Most mixed trips catching 8 to 10 or more species including Seatrout, Mangrove Snapper, Jack Crevalle, Ladyfish, and sometimes even a nice Redfish or Black Drum. These trips are great for kids and family groups wanting some easy fast catching action and great wildlife viewing seeing Dolphins and Manatees up close and personal on most every trip out.
