Fresh Water Fishing - January 2017

Indian River fishing report 01/27/2017 .

It's cooler this morning and temperatures are expected to drop through the afternoon as a cold front slowly moves through.

Black drum and trout biting. Lower temps finding game fish in deeper water . Some reports of Trout, Snappers, small Reds Snook, and  Black Drum in the backwaters.

Some report seeing Cobia , however they usually show up in early March.



The Mosquito lagoon and New Smyrna beach fishing is the place to fish .

New Smyrna Beach Area catching  black drum, trout, and red fish.

Indian River  has been good for trout, sheepshead, drum and lots of other fish right now.


Fishing is relatively good with a mix of Black Drum, Blues, Redfish, and occasional Snook and Flounder. Shrimp,

clams, and spoons are the best bet right now. When a minor front appears this  weekend, expect to see a few more Flounder.
