Fishing in Ponce Inlet
For those wishing to escape the busy crowds of Daytona Beach without sacrificing any of the Space Coast’s notorious sportfishing madness, Ponce Inlet is the place to be. Sharing the main waterways with two of the exemplary Central Florida fisheries - Daytona and New Smyrna Beach - the Inlet is, pretty much by design, anything but short of honey holes for backcountry and bluewater enthusiasts alike. The ample oyster bars, ledges and creek mouths of the Halifax River are ripe with the likes of Redfish, Sea Trout, Snook, Flounder, Pompano and Black Drum, making this one of the favorite sections of the Intercoastal Waterway for many. Trophy fishermen should direct their attention just a bit further down south, where the lush grass flats of the North Indian River Lagoon already serve as home to state records for both Redfish and Speckled Sea Trout. The Ponce De Leon Inlet is where the Intercoastal Waterway and the Atlantic Ocean meet, this transitory spot accounting for some of the most productive summer Tarpon bites around. Venturing further offshore, the countless wrecks, ledges, natural and artificial reefs lie scattered up to 50 miles offshore, providing ample structure for a variety of bottom huggers such as Snapper, Grouper, Amberjack, Cobia, and several shark species. Trolling the area, on the other hand, ensures a run at many of the most sought-after seasonal pelagics, including Dorado, Wahoo, Tuna, Swordish, Marlin and many others!

What People Are Saying About Ponce Inlet
"Flyfishing reds on the flats"
Be patient with the weather and flexible with your time.
BOOK with Capt Ron. The port is great, tons of fish, and with an excellent captain like Ron, you won't have to sit watching other people catch bait while you sit without a bite. Tons of good food in the area, especially at NSB, and no shortage of lodging in the area. Very family friendly area.
