Ever taste fresh Mahi that was cooked on a cedar plank? You don’t even have to do much to it to make
it a mouthwatering morsel. Maybe you like to catch fish more than you like to eat them. Either way, if
you are in New Smyrna Beach, you are in luck.
Sport fishing is one of the favorite pastimes of New Smyrna Beach vacationers and residents…and for
good reason. The fishery here is second to none. There is outstanding fishing in New Smyrna Beach year-
round. Our great structure attracts baitfish and those baitfish attract predatory fish. Offshore, you will
find tuna, dolphin, wahoo, king fish, sailfish and blue marlin.
Trolling is the most common method of offshore sport fishing in the Gulf Stream. Although most venture
out in larger sport fishers, you can sport fish in a boat as small as a 23-foot center console in the Gulf
Stream if you choose your days wisely.
There is also some great redfish and sea trout fishing in the Indian River Lagoon – 156 miles of a glorious
ecosystem just perfect for fishing. No matter what type of fishing you choose to catch, you will find New
Smyrna Beach a world class fishery and the perfect place for sport fishing.
