Early spring has arrived to East Central Florida, water temperatures in the upper 60’s, warm water fish like Jack Crevalle and Ladyfish are starting to show up after spending the winter in south Florida, seeing the first of the year Manatees arrive in the area. Backcountry fishing has been full of different variety of fish caught, Redfish, Seatrout, Sheepshead, Black Drum, Whiting, Snook, Jacks, Lady’s, Bluefish, Mangrove Snapper, plus always a couple of surprise catches like the small Barracuda we caught last week. Redfish and Black Drum schools are still on the flats of Mosquito Lagoon, always a bit more a challenge to hunt shallow water schools in spring time, but a fun sight fishing time. First time client Bill from Alabama came on a solo trip a couple weeks ago when winter was still here, and the water colder and lower, we hunted up a skinny water Redfish school in a back bay, sight catching a half dozen fish up to 24”………………
George and Harold came out on a backcountry trip a couple days ago, catching a good variety of all the different mixed species including a few convict fish Sheepshead……………..
Herman from Tallahassee, Florida was in Daytona for a few days and did a solo back waters trip, he is an artificial lure enthusiast so we only fished fake baits, catching several fish including a good Redfish which was eating with loud pops along the shoreline and H put his Gulp plastic in the right spot…………………
Brian from Massachusetts was along with his group on a mixed bag trip catching a good Spotted Seatrout in the backcountry…………………….
Father son team Doug and Matt from Michigan caught many species on a weathery morning, Matt pulled a good Red off an oyster shoreline on a live shrimp………………….
