New Smyrna Beach is a fishing and watersports town. Located near Ponce De Leon Inlet, minutes from Daytona Beach one hour east of Orlando, it is a prime tourist destination, especially during the winter months. Anglers who are staying in New Smyrna have access to plenty or nearby backcountry flats fishing.
The best inshore fishing near New Smyrna Beach is the Mosquito Lagoon. Much of this estuary is located inside the Merritt Island National Wildlife Refuge. The dominant species are redfish and seatrout. Black drum and tarpon are also caught here as well. Fishing techniques include sight fishing the flats, or fishing with live and natural baits. This is also a great location for fly fishing anglers to target redfish. Capt. Chris Myers is a full time flats fishing gudie who specializes in light tackle and fly fishing charters near New Smyrna Beach.
The Atlantic coast beaches along New Smyrna Beach produce great near shore fishing from May-October. When seas allow, small boats can make the trip out of Ponce Inlet and fish within a mile of shore, often within several hundred feet of the beach. Tarpon, sharks, kingfish, jack crevalle, bluefish, cobia, and tripletail are popular targets. In the fall, schools of mullet migrate south along the beaches. The predator fish follow these schools and this can make for some of the easiest fishing there is.
Surf fishing is available for those without boats. Standing on the beach or the nearby pier, anglers catch, bluefish, pompano, whiting, mackerel, drum, redfish, sharks, and more.
Large sport fishing boats make their way out of Pince Inlet each day. They target dolphin, kingfish, cobia, snapper, grouper, sailfish, and more. The gulfstream is a 20+mile ride. Farther out, some boats fish for yellowfin tuna, wahoo, and other pelagic species.
