Daytona Beach is referred to as “The World’s Most Famous Beach,” but did you know that the area also has some of the best inland fishing in the United States? The backwaters of east Central Florida feature lagoons, the Intracoastal Waterway, rivers, estuaries and canals.
Check out Inland Fishing Charters. With Capt. John Frazier at the helm, Inland Fishing Charters takes you throughout the beautiful Mosquito Lagoon and the Indian River Lagoon. There you will find Tarpon, Snook, Flounder, Spotted Seatrout and Redfish. Charters range from one to three people and are six hours each. All bait and tackle are provided and no fishing license is required.
There’s also Fishing Charters with Capt. Billy Pettigrew. Pettigrew offers multi-faceted inland fishing in areas like the Halifax River, Tomoka River and Mosquito Lagoon ranging from short trips (four hours) to extreme day trips (sunrise to sunset). Just a short drive north in Ormond Beach is Bad Juju Charters, a charter company that operates in and around the Daytona Beach area from Ponce Inlet to the Tomoka Basin.
If you’re in the Port Orange area, give Capt. Austin a call. His boat, the No pressure, is a custom-built 25’ Privateer Center console offering five and eight-hour inshore charters. Whether you’re after a trophy fish or your very first catch, Daytona Beach and the surrounding areas have endless opportunities to snag the big one.
