SPRING FISHING TRIPS in Daytona Beach with Captain John and Floating Time Charters

In the Spring in Daytona Beach, Fishing Really Starts to Heat Up! The warming waters along the coast bring us migrating Cobia (like the one in this picture) as well as Spanish Mackerel, Jack Crevalle, Bluefish, Pompano and plenty of other hungry fish following and feasting on schools of migrating baitfish.

Don’t Miss the Spring Cobia and Spanish Mackerel Runs in 2023! March and April are prime time for fishing for Cobia and Spanish Mackerel just off the coast of Daytona Beach!

In the Spring, Offshore Deep Sea Fishing in Daytona Beach Takes Off!  As the water warms, the fish we love to catch get closer to shore. We can head offshore for Snapper, Grouper, King Mackerel, Amberjacks and plenty more including Sharks!

Inshore Fishing in Daytona Beach Heats Up Too!
Newly arriving Pompano will enter the inlets, coastal rivers and creeks and add to the fun on a Daytona Beach inshore fishing trip. Redfish, Flounder and Black Drum are increasingly active as the water warms each spring. Schools of migrating Spanish Mackerel are entering inshore waters as they migrate north along the coast during March and April.

Welcome to Daytona Beach!
We hope you’re having fun in Daytona Beach enjoying our world famous beaches and motorsports. If you haven’t discovered already, Daytona Beach also offers great fishing from inshore saltwater fishing on the Halifax River to offshore deep sea fishing in the Atlantic Ocean. Daytona Beach is also one of the best places to go shark fishing in Florida.

Just off the coast of Daytona Beach lies one of Florida’s most productive artificial reef systems providing great bottom fishing for Snapper, Grouper, Triggerfish and Amberjacks all year long. The Atlantic coast off Daytona Beach also has plenty of rich opportunities for trolling and sight fishing for big predators like Cobia, King Mackerel and Barracudas. Nearby Ponce Inlet, Daytona’s gateway to the sea, is famous among expert anglers as a hot spot for catching monster Redfish, Flounder and Snook. If you want to catch Sharks on your charter, Daytona Beach has plenty! Shark fishing begins just off the beaches of Daytona Beach. Also near the shore are Pompano and Spotted Seatrout.

Whatever type of fishing you want to do, inshore river fishing, offshore deep sea fishing or if you just want to go shark fishing, Daytona Beach has it all and Floating Time Charters does it all.
