Fishing in New Smyrna Beach

If you're look for diverse angling, a New Smyrna Beach fishing charter might be just the thing for you. With the Mosquito Lagoon, Indian River Lagoon, and Atlantic Ocean at your fingertips, you’re hard-pressed to go home empty-handed. Larger than life fishing without the crowds? We’re sold!

Head to the popular Mosquito Lagoon and you'll hook into Redfish, Trout, and Tarpon. For monster-sized fish, explore the Indian River Lagoon’s diverse ecosystem of mangroves, oyster bars, and channels. Bull Redfish and Gator Trout stick around all year and the opportunities to hook into record-breaking sized fish are endless.

Head out from Ponce Inlet and you’ll hit productive reefs, home to bottom feeders such as  Snapper, Grouper, and Triggerfish, in no time. For pelagic species including Mahi Mahi, Wahoo, and even Sailfish, you’ll need to head about 40 miles out and into the Gulf Stream.

A half day trip in the Mosquito and Indian River Lagoon gives you enough time to pull a few fish onto the boat, but opt for a full day trip to get your hands on some monster-sized catch. If you’re looking to go past the continental shelf and into Gulf Stream, a full day or extended full day trip is recommended.

Most charters depart from boat ramps along the Indian River North, providing easy access to inshore and backcountry waters. For Atlantic-facing adventures, hop on a charter taking off from South Atlantic Avenue and minimize your travel time into deep waters.

Rules & Regulations

Like all Florida saltwater fishing charters, your New Smyrna Beach captain covers your license. For freshwater adventures, you'll need to purchase your own online or from a local DNR vendor. Bagging and seasonality vary depending on where you're fishing so it's best to head out with an experienced guide.

New Smyrna Beach Fishing Seasons

January

With clear waters in the backcountry, winter in New Smyrna Beach is a paradise for anglers. Sight fishing is the name of the game so be on the look out for tailing Redfish making their way through the shallow waters. 

February

Inshore fishing continues to be rewarding, with beautiful blue skies and mild temperatures sending away the winter blues. Head to the reefs for Amberjack and Snapper or stick closer to shore and hook into Trout and Redfish.

March

As the waters start to warm up, the baitfish move inshore. Fishing for Sheepshead inshore is not to be missed! Nearshore, watch out for migrating Manta Rays – there's almost always Cobia following closely behind.

April

With temperatures averaging between 60–79 degrees, April in New Smyrna beach is beautiful. Get out on the water and make the most of the Cobia, Kingfish, and Shark bite.

May

Escape Orlando's crowds and enjoy a relaxed day on the water in the lagoon or Atlantic ocean. Warmer currents offshore bring pelagics like Mahi Mahi, Tuna, and Wahoo as close as 20 miles to shore.

June

Tarpon fishing heats up along the beaches as the weather gets hot. Afternoon storms are common, making a morning charter the safest choice. The calm nearshore waters make for excellent bottom fishing.

July

Some real rod-benders can be caught out of New Smyrna Beach in July. Summertime is perfect for battling Sharks inshore, or Mahi Mahi offshore. In the reefs, get your hands on covetable Red Snapper!

August

If you're after Tarpon, this is one of your best shots! Head into the Lagoon for trophy "Silver Kings." If an offshore adventure is more your speed, head into the Gulf Stream for Mahi Mahi or into the reefs for Grouper.

September

The fall mullet run attracts migratory fish close to shore. If you're after a Bull Redfish, this is the time to go for it. Don't miss the annual FishStock festival for tournaments, panels, and bargains. 

October

The weather begins to cool and the southward migration continues. Hook into Sailfish, Kingfish, and Wahoo offshore or make the most of the incredible Seatrout and Redfish bite in the Indian River.

November

As we transition into winter, the inshore lagoons become increasingly appealing. Trout, Redfish, and Snook can be caught through to February, while Wahoo, Sailfish, and Kingfish bite hard offshore.

December

Bottom fishing is great at this time of year, with Snapper and Grouper moving into the nearshore reefs. Inshore, there's plenty of Sheepshead, making for fun fishing and great eating over the holiday period.

February can be a bit slow, but still a great time. We had 3 keepers from the trip, two of which are sharks. If you're just in it to catch and release its well worth it, but if you are interested in catching lots to eat it may be best to wait for early spring or fall

Check with the captain in a private message or go to their Facebook and locate their phone number and talk with them directly to find out if the conditions are looking good enough to go out (offshore specifically otherwise they may talk you into an inshore trip). Don’t get me wrong inshore fishing can get you some great fishing and if you only have a certain amount of time to be in the area go fish on!

Yes I would recommend this trip to anglers fishing in New Smyrna Beach for the first time. It was our first trip to NSB and it was the high light of our trip. I believe most people who try this will be back again. I know my wife and I will be returning for more shark fishing off the beach!

Our trip felt like we were fishing with someone we have known for some time. He made us feel right at home on his boat, we swapped fishing stories throughout the day. We caught plenty of fish, taking home exact what we needed which was an excellent tasting fish to share. We will definitely rebook the next time we are here.

We highly recommend the beach fishing with New Smyrna Beach Shark Hunters. Location was convenient and easy to get to. The crew was friendly and personable, and we felt like we had made good friends by the end of the night. While we didn't catch our target, it certainly wasn't for lack of trying. The crew worked hard from the start, right up to the last minutes. We had a great time, and will try again, hoping for less wind and current. Overall, a terrific experience!

My 12yo daughter wanted to go shark fishing, and this didn’t disappoint. We had good conversation, fun times looking for crabs, and a couple of opportunities to hook up. Listen to your Captain, as my daughter didn’t heed the instructions and lost her shark. I landed a nice one, and overall it was worth the time and money spent. I definitely recommend this trip and Captain.

We had a great time with Dustin, Tyler and Owen. My son was able to land a 6ft Black Tip shark named "Resurrection". Dustin is very knowledgeable about shark fishing and his main purpose is to create memories. My son will never forget this day catching Resurrection on Easter 2024!

Our original trip had to be modified due to high waves and Captain George provided ample information so we could change without penalty. Although we had been looking forward to the Gulf Stream, Captain Lance put us on some FANTASTIC spots inshore to catch pompanos, Spanish mackerel, mangrove snappers, jacks, ladyfish, grouper, and I even caught a blue crab with a lure! Professional, knowledgeable, super friendly and awesome company. We will most definitely be doing this again!

As a Northwoods fisherman I appreciate good equipment and a clean well running boat. Capt. Todd had everything ready to rock. I caught the biggest fish of my life off the rocks out of Ponce Inlet (bull red). The weather wasn't ideal but we kept moving and managed to keep catching fish.

The whole family had a great time. We caught a ton of different fish and even had a dolphin playing 10 feet away from the boat. He stayed out with us beyond the 4 hr mark because we were having so much fun and he wanted to make sure we made up for the big one that got away. And we did! Thanks Al.
