Spring Time

Trip Info


With the weather finally starting to warm up the fish are getting more and more hungry. The bite is picking up in the Tomoka River along with the Tomoka Basin in Ormond Beach. Redfish are on the move with this warming trend. You can find the fish on mud flats with scattered oysters and bait. In the Daytona Beach on the Halifax River you can still find fish on the docks and bridges. Ive seen an increase of Snook activity around Ponce Inlet in Port Orange along with some Trout and Reds. I’ve been using shrimp, finger mullet and mud minnows to get all my bites. I also have seen an increase on artificial bites as well. This is a good thing because the next thing to heat up is the top water bite of spring.
