Summertime Shark Fishing Trips in Daytona Beach

Forget Shark Week! Shark fishing is all year long in Daytona Beach! Captain Corey offers special Shark Fishing Trips all summer long. These are Nearshore fishing trips where sharks patrol the waters just beyond the breakers off the beach. Few tourists are aware of just how many sharks are right there near the shore. Let’s go get ‘em!!!
For more information see our Shark Fishing Trips page.

Let’s Go Fishing Offshore!

Daytona Beach is a Reef Fishing Paradise! The Atlantic Ocean off the coast of Daytona Beach is home to deep water natural reefs and one of the largest artificial reef systems in Florida!

Captain Corey is especially familiar with the extensive artificial reef system established by Volusia County in 1980, when the USS Mindanao was sunk as an artificial reef. (Volusia County is where Daytona Beach, New Smyrna Beach and Ponce Inlet are located) The artificial reef project has been such a huge success that there are now 15 artificial reef sites off the coast of Daytona Beach! The artificial reef sites range from less than one mile to 33 miles off the coast of Daytona Beach in waters ranging from just 37 feet to 135 feet in depth.

The natural coral reefs, known as the Oculina Coral Reefs are about 25 miles off the coast of Daytona Beach in 200 to 300 feet of water. The artificial reefs have added plenty of new habitats for many of the same bottom loving species that inhabit the natural reefs. Bottom fishing is equally good at both the natural and artificial reefs and give local fishing charter captains like Captain Corey plenty of extra options when planning an offshore trip.

Snapper and Grouper Heaven!

Over a dozen snapper species are found when reef fishing in Daytona Beach. Snapper are schooling all over the artificial reefs and daily bag limits are high in both state and federal waters for most Snapper species including Vermilion, Gray (Mangrove), Mutton, Cubera, Lane, Yellowtail, Queen, Blackfin, Schoolmaster, Silk, Dog and Mahogany Snapper!

You’ll probably catch a few 20 to 30 pound Red Snappers on an offshore charter with Captain Corey. On many of our offshore fishing trips this summer we’re catching a lot! Red Snappers are strictly regulated in state and federal waters. Even though Red Snappers may be “Catch and Release” only during your fishing trip in Daytona Beach, they are still a lot of fun to catch! Ask Captain Corey about current Red Snapper seasons. We know it’s tempting to keep everything we catch, but we won’t break the law for anyone!

Summer starts Grouper Season in Florida.
Grouper season begins in May and runs all summer long in state and local waters for Gag Grouper, Black, Red, Scamp, Yellowfin, Yellowmouth, Hind, Coney, Tiger, Yellowedge and Snowy Grouper. Some Grouper species are prohibited from harvest such as the Warsaw and Goliath Grouper but even these “Catch and Release” species are a lot of fun to catch!

More Reef Fish!

There are lots of other species inhabiting the reefs including Triggerfish, Black Sea Bass, Weakfish, large adult Redfish and Flounder as well as plenty of large predator species patrolling the waters above such as Amberjacks, Cobia, Barracudas and Sharks. Bottom fishing over Daytona Beach’s offshore reefs, whether your an experienced or beginning angler, is the fastest way to start catching fish and having fun!

Trolling for large predator species

The trolling action is great above and around the reefs during the summer months in Daytona Beach, even around the artificial reefs closer to shore that are easily reached with a 4 hour charter. Many highly desirable species are caught while trolling around the reefs including Amberjacks, Cobia, Dolphinfish (Mahi-mahi), Permit, King Mackerel, Spanish Mackerel, Sharks, Barracuda and more.

Want to do some serious trolling for fast moving gamefish? Captain Corey can arrange 6 and 8 hour offshore fishing trips that will give you plenty of extra time to troll for Sailfish, Dolphinfish (Mahi-mahi), Tuna, Wahoo, Cobia, King Mackerel, Barracuda and even large migratory Sharks.

Captain Corey will work with you to deliver the kind of offshore fishing you’re after. We can bottom fish or troll or do both depending on what’s biting and what you’re after. Either way, you’ll have a lot of fun and make some great memories fishing offshore with Captain Corey and On The Hook Charters.
