Winter can be the Best Time of Year for Fishing in Daytona Beach!
Just thinking of fishing in the winter brings up images of holes cut in ice and bitter cold north winds that challenge the resolve of even the most hardy anglers. But this is Florida! Here in Daytona Beach, the average high on a January day is 70 degrees. That's warmer than a day in May in New York City where the average high is only 68 degrees. And they don't call Florida the Sunshine State only during the Summer months! Here in the Daytona Beach area, even in the middle of winter, cloudy balmy days are rare. If a winter day starts off gloomy and overcast, chances are the Florida sun will be out and warming your back by mid morning!
Even better than Summer Fishing!
Many experienced local anglers who fish the Daytona Beach area year round will tell you they prefer fishing during the cool days of a Daytona Beach winter (cold would be an over statement) over fishing during the hot Florida summer months. In addition, fishing in Daytona Beach during the tourist off season means we often have the best spots to ourselves.
Offshore Reef Fishing Year Round!
Weather permitting, we can fish the highly productive artificial reefs just off the shores of Daytona Beach on a winter fishing charter just as successfully as we can during the height of summer. The many bottom dwelling species such as snapper and grouper that inhabit these reefs do so year round with little change in their feeding habits from season to season.
So if it's an offshore or nearshore fishing trip you're looking for, don't hesitate to let Captain Ron know. As long as the seas are not too choppy and we can make a safe and comfortable fishing trip out to the reefs, offshore and near shore fishing is on all year long with Captain Ron and Tightline Fishing Charters.
Great Inshore Fishing during the Winter Months!
Changes in seasons mean changes in water temperatures and fish migrate accordingly. Inshore waters around Daytona Beach can get quite warm during the hot summer months forcing many fish species to seek deeper cooler waters offshore.
Many species we love to target such as Black Drum, Flounder and Redfish actually thrive in the inshore waters around Daytona Beach during the winter months. These inshore waters cool down during the winter but are never cold. Black Drum, Flounder and Redfish which tolerate colder climates much further north along the Atlantic Coast, are at home in the inshore waters around Daytona Beach all winter long!
