Ormond Beach Fishing Overview

Ormond Beach, a small town in Florida, offers a unique fishing experience for enthusiasts seeking larger-than-life catches. The town is quieter than its neighboring Daytona Beach and is home to the Halifax River and Tomoka State Park, both of which provide excellent inshore fishing opportunities. The offshore bite is also hot year-round, with the Gulf Stream located about 40 miles out.

In the Halifax and Tomoka Rivers, anglers can find Snook, Redfish, Black Drum, and Tarpon. Further out, natural and artificial reefs off of Ponce Inlet offer bottom fishing opportunities for Grouper, Spadefish, and Snapper. In the Atlantic's deeper waters, hard-fighting fish such as Amberjack, Cobia, Kingfish, and Barracuda can be found. For big pelagic species, Mahi Mahi and Kingfish fishing in the Gulf Stream is a must-try.

For a laid-back family outing, a half-day trip in Ormond Beach's inshore waterways is recommended. Anglers can expect calm waters and a stocked cooler. Full-day or extended trips are ideal for offshore or Gulf Stream fishing. Most fishing charters launch from boat ramps and piers along the Halifax River, while Port Orange offers more variety for offshore trips.

It is important to note that the captain's license covers everyone on board for saltwater fishing charters, but a fishing license is required for freshwater fishing.

    We booked a last minute trip with captain Austin and had an amazing time catching multiple species of fish we had never seen before. Although weather conditions weren’t ideal, captain Austin kept us on the fish and made sure we had a great time. We will definitely be booking a trip with him again next time we are in the area!
