New Smyrna Fishing Charter Seasons

January

With clear waters in the backcountry, winter in New Smyrna Beach is a paradise for anglers. Sight fishing is the name of the game at this time: look out for tailing Redfish making their way through the shallow waters.

February

Inshore fishing continues to be very rewarding, with beautiful blue skies and nice temperatures sending away the winter blues. Bottom fishing for Snapper, Grouper and Amberjack is very good over the reefs and wrecks.

March

As the waters warm up for spring, numbers of baitfish increase. This brings the backcountry to life. Nearshore, watch out for migrating Manta Rays – there will almost always be a Cobia following them northwards up the coastline.

April

With average temperatures between 60 and 79 degrees, April in New Smyrna beach is very comfortable. Get out on the water and make the most of the nearshore bite: Cobia, Kingfish, and Sharks are all picking up this month.

May

Escape the crowds of Orlando and enjoy a relaxed day on the water in the lagoon or the Atlantic ocean. Warmer currents offshore bring pelagics like Mahi Mahi, Tuna, and Wahoo within fishable range.

June

Tarpon fishing heats up along the beaches as the weather gets very warm. Afternoon storms are common, meaning a lot of charters will fish earlier in the morning. With calm nearshore waters, this is a perfect time for family fishing.

July

Some real rod-benders can be caught out of New Smyrna Beach in July. Summertime is perfect for battling a Shark in shallow waters close to shore, or even heading offshore for Tuna and Mahi Mahi. Bottom fishing is very good.

August

Temperatures are high and afternoon storms are common. With beaches full of vacationers, this is a good time to get out onto the peaceful waters inshore or to battle a Tarpon in Ponce Inlet. Offshore fishing remains very good. 

September

The Fall Mullet run attracts migratory fish close to shore. This is the time of year for huge Bull Redfish around the beaches and inshore waters. Don’t miss the annual FishStock festival for days of tournaments, talks, and bargains. 

October

The weather begins to get cooler, while the migration southwards continues. Catch Sailfish, Kingfish, Wahoo and more offshore, or make the most of the incredible Seatrout and Redfish bite in the Indian River.

November

As the weather transitions to winter, the inshore lagoons look increasingly appealing. Speckled Seatrout, Redfish, and Snook can be caught through February, while Wahoo, Sailfish, and Kingfish are biting well offshore.

December

Bottom fishing is great at this time of year, with Snappers and Groupers moving to closer reefs and wrecks. Inshore, you will find large quantities of Sheepshead making for some fun fishing and great eating over the holiday period.

We booked 2 fishing trips... emailed with Lori months before the planned trip - she was super patient and super helpful. When we finally arrived the weather was not in our favor, we were in Orlando for a week and it was rain and thunderstorms every day! not ideal for fishing..... Lori and the Captains were amazing - both captains called us everyday with an update on the weather and did their best to re schedule the trips, the were very patient and very kind...... we ended up doing the trips - my husband was very pleased, caught many fish, Captain Brad was awesome, very knowledgeable, very friendly and very professional I highly recommend!!!!

Fun time for sure!
