Looking for a Floridian angling adventure where you can test your skills against diverse inshore fish, all in one place? Set your sights on a Halifax River fishing experience, which will see you cruising unspoiled mangroves, mazes of creeks, and oyster bars for your target species. Whether you’re looking to introduce your family to fishing, or want to take home a delicious dinner, the uniqueness of this fishery means you’ll find just what you’re searching for.
 
The species you’ll be able to cast your line for in the Halifax River are a real “who’s-who” of Floridian favorites. If you’re looking for something tasty to fill your cooler, the marshy mangroves are home to the trio of Flounder, Spotted Seatrout, and Redfish. If you’re chasing these fish, chances are you’ll also come across Black Drum, Sheepshead, various Shark, and even hard-fighting Snook and Tarpon, too. 
 
If you’re really into your saltwater fishing, head straight to Ponce Inlet, where the river meets the Intracoastal Waterway. Here, you’ll have the opportunity to encounter species such as King and Spanish Mackerel, Barracuda, and even Shark species. The Bonnethead is an especially popular catch.
 
Halifax River fishing charters follow the general Florida trip formula, meaning you’ll find four, six, and eight-hour options on offer. The main difference between each trip is simply how much time you want to spend on the water!
 

Rules & Regulations

All Florida charters cover saltwater fishing licenses for their guests, and the captains dotted around the Halifax River are no different. They’ll also be able to inform you on any local changes regarding bag and size limits.

January

Thanks to its year-round fishery, you’ll be able to start off your year with a plentiful Halifax River fishing adventure. You’ll find Redfish, Spotted Seatrout, Sheepshead, and Black Drum on offer.

February

When February rolls around, Ponce Inlet is the place to go! You’ll be able to target King Mackerel as they begin their annual migration, and you might come face-to-gills with some Shark species, too.

March

As spring approaches, the waters start to warm up, which means that the waters of the Halifax are bustling with favorites such as Redfish, Spotted Seatrout, Flounder, and even the hard-fighting Snook.

April
The inshore bite remains strong in the river, with huge Reds, Spotted Seatrout, and tasty Flounder all making their presence known. Head to Ponce Inlet and you’ll encounter Shark species and feisty Barracuda.
 
May

This is the time to cast your line for huge Spotted Seatrout. You’ll find them in the river’s inshore waters, joined by Redfish and Flounder. If you’re after a Shark battle, you’ll find plenty on offer around Ponce Inlet.

June

As the water heats up, so does the Spotted Seatrout bite! Explore the river's marshy mangroves for your best bet of landing this fish. Flounder and Redfish are also on offer, as well as hard-fighting Tarpon and Snook.

July

Spending a day on the water is the perfect way to beat the heat! Adventure out to Ponce Inlet, and you’ll be able to cast your line for Shark species. Spotted Seatrout are also plentiful inshore.

August
This is the perfect month to “bow to the King”! You’ll be able to battle hard-fighting Tarpon along the Halifax River. Why not test your skills against some feisty Snook, too?
September

Snook fishing remains on fire in September, making this the perfect time to come and battle a few of these hard-fighters. Tarpon are migrating, so you may find a Silver King or two on the end of your line!

October

King Mackerel can be hooked around Ponce Inlet, and you may end up coming up against with some Shark species, too. The first Bull Redfish start to appear in the murky, marshy waters of the river, as well.

November

November tends to mean one thing when it comes to Floridian fishing: Bull Redfish! You’ll find the river swarming with some impressively-sized species, so come cast your line for a trophy.

December

End the year in the right way and explore the river for some world-famous fish. You'll find a whole host of King Mackerel on offer near Ponce Inlet, while, further up the river, you can find plenty of feisty Snook.

Going out with Captain Rob would be fine for first-timers or experienced fishermen. He knows the spots where the fish are and is able to teach the skills to catch them.

Great location to fish. Leaving under the north causeway bridge by some beautiful houses with large boats and out of Ponce Inlet with jetties on both sides and the lighthouse is great. Seeing the hotels/condos of New Smyrna and Daytona is really nice. Add in a bunch of fish and this is a great trip.

Pray for a day that was not so windy and cold. Captain Gary did an excellent job under challenging conditions. Filleting the sheepshead must have been brutal in the cold wind. I would not hesitate to go fishing with Gary again.

Be sure to take sea sickness meds before the trip. Bring layers as it can be chilly in the morning trip out to the fishing spot. Bring a cushion to sit on, the seats are not padded. Bring water and a light lunch if it's an all-day trip. Bring binoculars to view sea animals while out on the ocean. Bring gloves for holding on the the pole and fish!

Went after sea trout early and then targeted red drum. There are some huge red drum in the area. Lastly, we fished for some huge snook. Hold onto your rod with both hands!! If you want a chance at a big fish and also get some great filets to eat, I would recommend fishing with Captain Kyle or Captain Chris!

Skipper will welcome you with an infectious smile and great, happy attitude. It was a great learning opportunity and fabulous trip with a calm and enjoyable sea state. I pretty certain everyone aboard was catching several species of fish. Seeing the barracuda, sea turtle and dolphins on the surface and monster groupers ten feet bellow wash a fantastic sight. Well worth the time and money. Make sure to leave a generous tip for the crew as you disembark from the boat.

We had an amazing shark fishing trip. We’ve done these charters a couple times in other states but this was by far our best experience. We are so thankful for captain mark for making sure we not only caught the sharks but also got to experience other sea life as well! Would definitely consider booking another trip with him when we visit Daytona again!

Replied to our request almost immediately through fishbooker. Great communication, never second guessed anything throughout the entire trip. Everything was prepared and ready for us to start catching fish. Moved around to different areas of the inlet and had us on several different spots. Fairly priced and very professional. Definitely will charter this outfit again in the future. -Ivy Aces
