Nearshore Reef Fishing Charters in Daytona Beach with Captain Ron and Tightline Fishing Charters.

Exciting fishing in Daytona Beach begins just off the coast where an extensive system of artificial reefs and natural formations have created some of the best bottom fishing habitat in Florida!  On a nearshore fishing trip with Captain Ron, you’ll be fishing in the Atlantic Ocean up to three miles off Ponce Inlet, famous among experienced, local anglers as the center of fishing action in the entire Daytona Beach area.

Located just minutes from downtown Daytona Beach, Ponce Inlet is at the mouth of the Halifax River.  The Halifax River runs through Dautona Beach and is the town’s access to the sea.

It doesn’t take long to reach prime fishing grounds on a Nearshore Reef Fishing Trip with Captain Ron!  Fishing Nearshore means less time traveling and more time fishing!

The Nearshore reefs near Daytona Beach are home to an amazing variety of fish!

We’ll be bottom fishing the reefs for Big Bull Redfish, Black Drum, Mangrove Snapper, Lane Snapper, Flounder, Sea Bass, Whitings and Weakfish.  Depending on the season, there are also schools of Jack Crevalle, Spanish Mackerel and Sheepshead feeding on baitfish and crustaceans in nearshore waters. You may even encounter large gamefish that spend much of their lives nearshore such as Cobia and Tarpon!

Plenty of Sharks Nearshore, too! Sharks are particularly plentiful in the nearshore waters near the coast of Daytona Beach, especially in the summer. There are Atlantic Sharpnosed Sharks, Spinner, Sharks, Black Tips, Hammerheads and more!  For a thrilling experience for the whole family, ask Captain Ron about his Shark Fishing Trips!

Big redfish kike this one are common at Ponce Inlet

The Ponce Inlet area is well known as a great place to catch huge Bull Redfish!

Among Redfish enthusiasts, Ponce Inlet is legendary!  Big mature redfish live on these nearshore reefs, while smaller juvenile reds inhabit the coastal estuaries, joining the adults offshore when they mature.

Each Autumn, schools of big mature Redfish enter Ponce Inlet to feed on schools of migrating baitfish.  This makes for the most exciting redfish angling in Florida! Learn more about the Autumn Redfish Run right here in Ponce Inlet!
