WHERE WE FISH NEAR DAYTONA BEACH
Ponce Inlet, New Smyrna Beach and Port Orange


Daytona Beach is famous for it's beaches but is not a port city. Captain Corey of On The Hook Charters will gladly trailer his boat to the nearest Daytona Beach boat ramp of your choice. Captain Corey also recommends several nearby boat launch locations that will put his charter boat nearest to the best fishing grounds in the Daytona Beach area. This means less time traveling on the water and more time fishing!

Below is information on these boat launch locations near Daytona Beach and the easiest directions for getting there.

About Ponce Inlet

Ponce Inlet (officially Ponce de Leon Inlet) is the closest inlet to the Atlantic Ocean near Daytona Beach, Florida. It is where the mouths of the Halifax River (from the north) and the Indian River North (from the south) converge and empty into the Atlantic Ocean. The Halifax River drains the rich estuaries known as Tomoka River, Bulow Creek and Spruce Creek. The Indian River North drains the equally rich Mosquito Lagoon Aquatic Preserve. As every experienced saltwater fisherman knows, where nutrient rich waters of rivers such as the Halifax and Indian River North empty into the ocean, you'll find the best saltwater fishing grounds. Nutrient rich waters at the mouth of the Halifax River make for great inshore fishing and where these waters empty into the ocean, you'll find the best nearshore fishing. Even offshore fishing for many miles out is enriched by the food sources generated by these rivers through the Ponce Inlet.

From Ponce Inlet we can fish inshore along the mangrove lined Halifax River and the nearby Spruce Creek estuary system for world class snook fishing during the spring, summer and autumn months. In the winter, these same waters offer world class fishing for redfish, spotted sea trout and flounder. During the winter months, fishing charters also target sheepshead and black drum near the inlets, docks and bridges. From our boat ramp in the town of Ponce Inlet, it is less than one mile trough Ponce de Leon Inlet to the open waters of the Atlantic Ocean.

All this makes for the best combination of inshore, nearshore and offshore fishing in Central Florida just 20 minutes from Daytona Beach. Whether you prefer inshore, nearshore or offshore fishing charters, Captain Corey of On The Hook Charters can put you on the fish you are seeking to catch!

The boat ramp is on Peninsular Drive right next door to the Hidden Treasure Rum Bar & Grill, (4940 S Peninsula Dr, Ponce Inlet, Florida). This waterside sports and Tiki Bar restaurant features steaks, seafood and pasta and is a great place to eat or relax with a few drinks before or after a fishing charter.

The boat ramp is just 100 yards due south of the famous Ponce Inlet Lighthouse. The 175 foot tall Ponce Inlet Lighthouse is the tallest lighthouse in Florida and the second tallest lighthouse in the country. You can't miss it. There is public parking right next door to the boat ramp.

About New Smyrna Beach


The town of New Smyrna Beach is located on the Indian River North where US Highway 1 meets State Road 44. (Bikers from the Daytona bike festivals will recognize Highway 44 as the scenic cross Florida route to beautiful Crystal River and Homosassa Springs on the Gulf of Mexico). New Smyrna Beach is only 14 miles from Daytona Beach and just 3 miles up the Indian River North from Ponce Inlet and the Atlantic Ocean. New Smyrna Beach is very well known for fishing, boating and surfing. The Coronado Beach Bridge on Highway 44 crosses the Indian River North (Intracoastal Waterway) connecting downtown New Smyrna Beach with the beaches on the coastal barrier island.

Because of it's location on the Indian River North and it's proximity to great fishing spots like Ponce Inlet and Mosquito Lagoon, New Smyrna Beach is home to numerous fishing charter boats. These fishing charters serve visitors to nearby Daytona Beach as well as the nearby New Smyrna beaches. From New Smyrna Beach fishing charters can offer great inshore and offshore deep sea fishing trips.
