July Fishing In New Symrna Beach
Beach, Spruce Creek area the fishing has been mediocre. I have not been catching too many fish lately, although the night bite has been steady.
The backwaters of the New Smyrna Beach area have been yielding a few small redfish and jacks and the occasional snook. The lure of choice has been a green DOA CAL on a 1/4 ounce jighead. The action that has been producing these fish have been pitching underneath the mangroves and bouncing around the lure on the bottom, most hits come on the fall.
The Backwaters of Spruce Creek have been surprisingly slow, I have been seeing a lot of tarpon rolling and chasing bait around structure but nothing more than a few snook and mangrove snapper. The snook have been hitting very early in the morning or right as the sun is setting. The lure of choice has been a chrome Super Spook XT worked extremely slowly around structure and oyster bed drop offs. The mangroves have been hitting DOA CAL'S like crazy, out of 5 baits I fished 3 had the tails bitten off.
The Night bite has been good. A few redfish and snook as the tides change. We have been nailing them on 2oz Flairhawks and 9inch Spooltek stretches. The best way to fish these baits is slow and very close to the bottom. You will feel the "thump from hell" and just set the hook as hard as you can and wrench your fish away from cover.
Good luck and tightlines.
