Changing weather circumstances have stored most fishermen out of the ocean however there’s a pleasant inshore catch proper now.
SURF, PIERS: Gene Lytwyn at The Fishin’ Hole in downtown Daytona Beach stated anglers are catching increasingly fish from the surf and space piers. “The surf has seen an increase in bluefish and a few more black drum,” he stated. “Whiting have moved in and out with the rough surf conditions, but they’re here to stay. A few more Spanish mackerel have joined the party, especially around the ocean piers and jetties. The piers have also had an influx of sheepshead.” Capt. Mike Vickers Jr. (hammockbaitandtackle.com) provided an analogous report from Flagler County. “The surf in Flagler is seeing a good pompano bite with drum, reds, ladyfish and whiting,” he stated. “The pier is seeing much the same with the addition of flounder, Spanish mackerel and sheepshead.”
