Saltwater fishing near Daytona Beach is a year round activity. The temperate climate that made this location famous allows for great fishing twelve months a year. Located about one third of the way down Florida's east coast, Daytona Beach became well known for NASCAR racing and spring break beaches. Whether you are visiting the Daytona 500, Firecracker 400, or just in the area for some surf, fun, and sun, consider taking an inshore saltwater fishing trip as well. Daytona Beach is bordered by the Atlantic Ocean to the east and the Halifax River to the west. Just to the south is the Ponce de Leon inlet. The inlet drains the Halifax River to the north and the Mosquito Lagoon which reaches 22 miles to the south. The Mosquito Lagoon offers the best inshore fishing near Daytona Beach. Near and to the south of the inlet are a maze of backcountry mangrove islands intersected by saltwater creeks and cuts which hold a variety of fish. In these northern regions of Mosquito Lagoon live seatrout, redfish, drum, ladyfish, bluefish, tarpon, snapper, flounder, grouper, and more. farther to the south, the Mosquito Lagoon opens up into expansive grass flats well known for their redfish and seatrout.
The Ponce de Leon Inlet is the closest access to the Atlantic Ocean from Daytona Beach. Giant redfish, tarpon, and other species reside in the inlet itself but fishing in the passage is best done with larger boats. The shallow and narrow inlet means there is little room to escape the wakes of large fishing boats and other vessels. The most effective technique is to drift with the tide using a live bait near the bottom. Just south of the inlet are several bridges which will hold various kinds of fish. tarpon, snook, redfish, drum, and goliath grouper can be found there. Other anglers enjoy catching sheephead and snapper near the bridge pilings.
During the spring, summer, and fall, nearshore fishing along Daytona beach is popular for tarpon, sharks, jack crevalle, false albacore, cobia, and king mackerel. This type of fishing can be done out of small boats on calm weather days and is often from right in the surf to several hundred yards out. Anglers without access to boats can fish in the surf year round. Bluefish, mackerel, whiting, pompano, drum, redfish,sharks, and more are caught by shorebound surf anglers.
