April2017 Florida MosquitoLagoon NewSmyrna Daytona Beach

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.........

Jack crevalle are widespread through the waterway in spring, if they are swimming, they are eating and hard pulling making for always fun rod bending, Zak battled this one on light tackle……………….
