‘Kids Special’ Fishing Trips
Fishing Trips in the Atlantic Ocean for Families, Kids and Beginners
On the Hook Charters specializes in Fishing Adventures for the Whole Family. On a ‘Kids Special’ fishing trip with On The Hook Charters, your entire family will have plenty of fun on a 4 hour fishing adventure into the Atlantic Ocean to fish with Captain Corey and First Mate Melissa on their 2020 29′ C-Hawk.
It’s a short trip to the artificial reefs just off the coast where the fish are plentiful. The reefs are some of the most popular fishing grounds in Daytona Beach. There’s plenty of thrills for everyone aboard fishing for the many species that inhabit the reefs.
We can bottom fish for a wide variety of Snapper, Grouper and Triggerfish. Big predators also inhabit these reefs including Cobia, Amberjacks, Barracudas and Sharks. You never know what you’ll catch when fishing the reefs with Captain Corey and First Mate Melissa but we know everyone will have fun and make fishing memories to last a lifetime!
A Little About Daytona’s Artificial Reefs
Volusia County, home to Daytona Beach, has created one of the the largest and most successful artificial reef systems in Florida. Consisting mainly of discarded concrete structures such as bridge pilings and culverts, these man made reefs are now home to millions of sea creatures from corals and invertibrates all the way up the food chain to amberjacks and sharks. They are found from 2.2 nautical miles to 32.8 nautical miles miles offshore with the majority being between 5 and 20 miles offshore. They are right off the coast of Daytona Beach, New Smyrna Beach, Ponce Inlet and other coastal towns in Volusia County.
Together with the numerous natural reefs, largely grown on natural rock outcroppings, these artificial reefs are a boom for private recreational fishing as well as offshore fishing charters.
The reefs are the perfect fishing spot for families with children, not too far from shore and plenty of fish of all sizes year round! You may even see dolphins along the way!
