July 2018 New Smyrna Beach Fishing Report
In the New Smyrna Beach, Spruce Creek area the bite has been on the slower side until these last few days, due to the fact there has been a lot of rain. Whatever happened is great the fishing has been better and I have been enjoying it.
In the New Smyrna Beach back country I have been hooking into sea trout and redfish. The red fish I have been catching are slightly over slot and put up a great fight in the skinny water. I have been primarily been targeting these fish in the early morning by blind casting with a DOA CAL on a 1/4 oz jig head. I also hooked into a 3ft tarpon on a Super Spook. I expect the redfish and trout fishing to start heating up and bigger bull redfish to start making their way to the flats.
In the Spruce Creek, Rose Bay area the primary catch for me has been snook and trout but my friend has been whacking the redfish back there left and right. We are using chrome Super Spooks and we are walking them slowly. We have also seen a few tarpon roll and chase bait up to shore. Overall the bite back here has been slow but within the next month I expect things to heat up back here.
At night on the bridges I have been whacking slot sized snook and bull redfish. Our lure of choice is a 2oz flairhawk bounced off of the bottom. The only live bait we have been using have been croakers and we have been catching a snook every croaker we put out. Within 2-5 minutes the snook find the bait and we get hooked up!
Good Luck and Tightlines.
