Black Drum aren't the only big drum on Daytona's nearshore reefs. These reefs are also home to big bull Red Drum (redfish). Adult redfish spend their lives on these reefs, only entering nearby Ponce Inlet each Autumn to spawn. Redfish are perhaps the most popular game fish in all of Florida, certainly for inshore and nearshore fishing charters in Daytona Beach.

In late Spring, beginning in June and through May, is the best time of year to catch big adult "doormat" sized flounder. Like Mangrove Snapper, flounder are plentiful with a high daily bag limit, and a lot of fun to catch. There's also no maximum size limit so the big doormat flounder are keepers!

Flounder, by the way, have perhaps the most tender, succulent flesh of any game fish.
How to Eat a Flounder!
Intimidating to first timers, flounder are the easiest of all game fish to clean and eat! When cleaned, scaled and baked whole, the upper side of flounder meat comes right off the bone with a fork, then the entire skeleton peels right off in one piece, leaving you the second half to enjoy.
For a simple, world class seafood dish, slice through and under the top half of the flounder meat and stuff with crabmeat or shrimp, butter, seasonings and breadcrumbs before baking. (Lots of great Stuffed Flounder recipes on the internet)
