Flats Fishing

Flats fishing is one of the most popular coastal activities in Florida affording anglers the opportunity to catch some of the same species of fish as saltwater fishing, but in shallow, more protected waters. Usually poling from a small skiff, fisherman gain the upper hand – a chance to get ultra close to fish before casting out. More experienced anglers sometimes choose wading or canoeing or kayaking the flats. If you’re thinking about adding flats fishing to your Daytona Beach vacation’s to-do list, there are several guides and charters in the area.

Our flats fishing outfitters offer everything from personal fishing instruction to backcountry guiding throughout the Tomoka River, Tomoka River Basin and Ponce Inlet. Casting your line off a small skiff in the Atlantic Ocean or coastal waterway is guaranteed to make lasting memories while catching dinner.
