Looking for a fishing trip that involves endless big game, sunny skies, beautiful beaches, and a variety of companies looking to take you out for a great trip on the sea? Then Daytona Beach is right up your alley. What else could you expect from the city known as “The World’s Most Famous Beach”? This coastal city, home to about 60,000 is actually the anchor of a much larger metro area of around half a million. Doesn’t matter if you are a novice or a pro, Daytona Beach is a deep sea fishing paradise. Not only is the water off shore teaming with fish, but the life onshore is nearly as vibrant as the deep Atlantic Ocean. Daytona Beach is a spring break hotspot with tons of options for the angler looking to blow off some steam. The real draw to this beautiful beach is the game offshore.

Big game and big fun in Daytona Beach

If you are looking to go off-shore charter fishing, the waters of the Atlantic Ocean off the coast of Florida are one of the world’s hotspots. Most companies offer short excursions or full overnight trips, and there is certainly a company to fit your needs and budget. Here you can wrestle with sportfish like cobia, kingfish, and mahi mahi. Staples of the Daytona Beach deep sea fishing scene are tripletail and tuna.

Pro Angler top destination: Ponce Inlet

Ponce Inlet is a quaint little town located due south of Daytona Beach. Famous for its lighthouse, beautiful beach, and great fishing opportunities, it is a great place to get away from the tourist rush that sometimes plagues the bigger cities north of it. Here you can find some quaint marinas, and  enjoy some of the finer comforts in the fishing world, all in a tiny village of roughly 3,000 people. Here the fishing charter companies will be less crowded. You pay for what you get, but what you get is worth it. If you want a quieter, more comfortable experience, Ponce Inlet is the place to go.
