There’s something fishy going on in New Smyrna Beach…in a good way. Under blissful blue skies and at the edge of pristine beaches, New Smyrna Beach – which is nearly surrounded by water – is a fisherman’s paradise.
New Smyrna Beach is basically a barrier island with the Atlantic Ocean to the north and more wrecks and artificial reefs here than anywhere on this coast. Troll for grouper, snapper, triggerfish and amberjacks on a half day trip or make it a full day offshore excursion in search of mahi, yellowfin tuna, wahoo and sailfish.
You can also choose to traverse the tranquil waters of the Indian River and beautiful backwaters of the Mosquito Lagoon to the south; where you’ll find the shallow water trout and redfish angling seductive. By the way, like many of our locals, the redfish stay right here in New Smyrna Beach year-round!
