Feb 2024 New Smyrna Backcountry Daytona Beach

Post by CaptMikeSavedow »

Spring here in East Central Florida means the return of coastal migratory fish species that have spent the winter further south on the eastern seaboard, waiting for rising water temperatures to signal their northward spring migration. Along the intracoastal waterway and the beach, Tarpon, Jack Crevalle, Bluefish, Ladyfish, Pompano, also bait fish Glass Minnows, Mullet, Pilchards and Sardines begin the annual cycle, swimming north in spring. Game fish striking bait on the surface make for great sight fishing, casting a lure, fly or bait right into the white water strikes can be an instant hookup, in spring , shrimp are also on the move here especially on a dropping tide in the morning and nighttime. Resident fish also become more active with warming water and more food, Seatrout, Snook, Redfish, Black Drum and others, recently Ella was out with me along with her family, catching many different species including a few nice Black Drum ……………….

Kristin from Alaska was out again with me throwing the fly, catching several species in the backcountry, including a few fun Ladyfish, spring can be good for flyfishing here with the schooling gamefish and surface activity ……
