Question Daytona Beach Fishing

Anyone fished there? The in-laws invited us to stay with them in June, and I am going there in the blind as far as the fishing goes.

Any tips on places to try and fish to target?

Head south near Patrick Air Force Base area and catch croakers. Snook are in the beach. Never had much luck in Daytona

Go sit on the beach with a cooler of beer, fishing pole in a pvc rod holder, and a pompano rig with triangle weight and shrimp. You don't need one of those 12' surf rods because the fish aren't that far off the beach. There's a deeper trough between sand bars within casting distance of the beach. You should catch something but if you don't you'll enjoy the scenery and cold beer.

p.s. Don't forget the sunscreen. You'll burn in less than an hour.

Last time I fished in Dayton was from the pier, but that would have been in 1980 something.

I've been scouting a few bridges in the area on Google maps, and I've got plenty of surf gear.

Does anyone know what I can expect to catch in the surf there? I would rather fish with lures, but I'll fish with bait too if it helps to catch some fish.

Pompano, whiting, black drum, and maybe a redfish or snook. I live on the West coast but have fished Cocoa Beach a bunch when I go over there. The Atlantic can churn up pretty easy. If the waves are big don't even bother. You'll have a hard time keeping your weight in one spot and probably won't catch anything but hardhead catfish. That's been my experience when the water gets ruff and nasty.

Thanks for the heads up. I guess we will hit one of the inland bridges if the water gets nasty.

I'm still trying to find a place to wade fish.

I don't think there are any places in Daytona to wade fish. It's pretty much intercoastal waterway and the beach. There may be some places there to the south.

Head down towards Ponce Inlet. A lot less crowded.

Get yourself one or two surf rods and enjoy the beach. Those short poles won't cut it. The fish move out to the outer bars as water temps rise. A few pomps will be around but close to the inlets and you will only get them during the first hour of light in the mornings or the last hour in the evenings. You will not reach them with short rods and you also will not keep the line of a short rod above the inner breaking waves. The waves crashing on your line is not good and you will never get a weight to settle. 90% of the beach at Daytona has a slow grade and the the only time the bar is close is at low tide. Go behind the la playa and the sea garden resorts. They are both under major construction. Stand on the beach directly behind where those two buildings come together. There is a good deep hole that is easily fished during high and low tide. I fish there a lot this spring. I got a limit of pompano there this past sunday after the storms. The tide was incoming and it was the last couple hours of daylight. I have been getting pound to pound in a half whiting out of that hole as well. Your welcome.
Oh. If the water is cloudy or dirty, don't even bother to cast a line. Go find clean water to fish.

Thank you very much for the info. I'll give it a try!
