Shark Fishing Trips

Great shark fishing begins just off the coast of Daytona Beach!

You don’t have to go far to encounter sharks here in Daytona Beach. While swimmers and sunbathers enjoy our beautiful beaches, hungry sharks are patrolling the shoreline just beyond the breakers. While dangerous encounters are rare, more shark attacks occur in Daytona Beach and neighboring New Smyrna Beach than anywhere else in the world according to the Florida Museum’s International Shark Attack File, the world’s largest data base of shark attacks. Both Daytona Beach and New Smyrna Beach have been declared the ‘Shark Bite Capital of the World”, depending on who you ask!

Captain Ron will take you on an exciting shark fishing adventure just off the coast of Daytona Beach and New Smyrna Beach, and the heart of some of the world’s most shark infested waters!

These are nearshore fishing charters, typically no more than a mile from shore, and do not require a long trip to reach the best fishing grounds for shark fishing. Less time getting there and more time fishing!

Children and first timers are always welcome!

You don’t have to be an experienced angler to have fun shark fishing in Daytona Beach with Captain Ron. All shark fishing trips with Captain Ron and Tightline Fishing Charters are family friendly.

The Sharks We Encounter!

On a Daytona Beach shark fishing trip with Captain Ron, most of the sharks we hook are between 3 to 6 feet in length. Even at that size, sharks can be very dangerous especially when brought on board. There are many different shark species in these waters. Some of the species most often encountered include Atlantic Sharp Nose Sharks, Black Tip Sharks, Black Nose Sharks, Spinner Sharks, Hammerheads, Bonnetheads, Nurse Sharks and Bull Sharks.

Small sharks like this one are safe to bring on board.

“Keepers” and “Catch and Release”

There are dozens of shark species in these nearshore waters and like any species of fish, some are rare and protected and some are plentiful, good eating and sustainably and responsibly harvested. Captain Ron strictly follows all Florida and federal regulations regarding shark fishing. These important regulations determine which species and sizes of sharks you will be allowed to keep and which must be released.

You never know what kind of shark you’ll encounter on a Daytona Beach shark fishing trip but whether it’s a keeper or catch and release, hooking a shark on the end of your line is a thrilling fishing experience!
