New Smyrna and Daytona Beach Offshore Fishing Report

With the water temperature still in the mod 60’s fishing inside 20 mile is tough. Not much action on the troll. Only bite we were able to get was a couple kingfish. Bottom fishing however is still consistent. Due to the water still being cold the fish are lazy, you have to drop the bait right in from for them to get bit. Bluefish are everywhere however. Lots of fun catching them on a fly rod. Capt. Nick

New Smyrna Beach to St. Augustine Offshore Fishing Report

The wahoo bite is running long this season. They are not as thick as they were in February but given the right conditions you can still come home with dinner. The further you venture north into St. Augustine territory the better chance you have. We’ve had the best hook up with black and orange high speed lures. Mahi are also showing up early this year which should give us an exciting trolling season.   Capt. Nick

New Smyrna Beach, Ponce Inlet & Daytona Beach Offshore Fishing Report by Capt. Nick

The weather gave us a chance to head offshore Saturday for some trolling action. It did not disappoint. The PG’s are holding a decent amount of King Mackeral on the north side. Spoon of choice was black with purple flash and pink. Also pulled some ballyhoo rigged with green sea witch and got us a decent Mahi. Our winter days being able to head offshore in the Daytona Beach and New Smyrna Beach area is minimal due to high seas, but if we pick a day where we can go it’s worth it. Capt.

Ponce Inlet Offshore Fishing Report

Ponce Inlet offshore water temps have been sitting in the low 80’s which means hungry fish. King mackerel are still loving the planer and spoon combo. We’ve had great luck with bigger fish using chin weighted ballyhoo and larger bonita strips with white and pink sea witch. The only downside is when kings are plenty so are the barracudas. Reel fast….   Capt. Nick

Ponce Inlet Offshore Fishing Report for July 16th – 18th

Offshore fishing report July 16th: Trolling bite was a little slow but we can always rely on the barracudas for a fun fight. These guys come 5 feet out of the water trying to throw the hook. Very acrobatic and they like to fight all the way to the boat.   Offshore fishing report July 18th: The King and Spanish Mackerel’s are back. Trolling over structure and ledges will get them fired up with live bait or bright colored spoons. Using wire to the spoon will prevent break offs from their razor sharp teeth. Not much beats a bowl of

Ponce Inlet Offshore Fishing Report for July 9th – 11th

Offshore fishing report July 9th: Tons of weeds moved closer to shore which brought the pelagic bite into the 80 to 150 foot of water. Although it’s a chore to clear all the baits as you troll through the miles and miles of sargassum it usually yields good results. Naked ballyhoo got the most bites.   Offshore fishing report July11th: We ran a little different trip this time. Stayed close to shore and fished for bonita on light spinning rods. Using vertical speed jigs we cast into the school of bonita and it didn’t take long to get a bite.
