NSB/Daytona Beach Surf Fishing Report: August 2014

Daytona Beach Surf Fishing Report

[dropcap]W[/dropcap]e’ll the humidity is back along with the afternoon storms which can only mean one thing here at the beach. Summer is back, and it’s seems as hot as ever already. With the change of seasons so does the change in fishing here. Usually this type of year when it comes to ocean fishing it’s typically pretty simple to predict with just Whiting, catfish, and shark being caught. Yet so far this year there are recent reports of Black Drum, Bluefish, and even Pompano still out there biting. The occasional Bull Redfish and also Sea trout has been caught as well. Shrimp, clams, cut bait, and sand fleas have all worked well here.

It seems most have had luck with the outgoing tide in the early mornings. A quick hint is to try moving around if you’re not doing well in one spot. There are lots of troughs and holes around these parts of the beach. Here is a picture of a local catch. This nice size shark was caught down in Bethune beach a few hundred feet north of the wall at Bethune Park.
