    This week, the bite was a bit slow, but once the fish turned on, it was ON. Lots of smaller whiting with a few larger-sized fish in the mix. I’ve found the best bite to be on the incoming tide early in the morning. Live sand fleas is still the bait of choice for the whiting.

    A few of the fishing piers up north in the Daytona area have had some large schools of pompano running around, which made for some nice sight fishing catches this week. Wacky jigs (yellow) worked very well targeting these fish.

    Large schools of Spanish mackerel, blue runners and bluefish have been chasing bait pods up and down the coastline. Silver spoons, top water plugs(early morning), and any of the soft plastics worked fast around the bait pods have been producing nice limits to take home. And anyone looking for a fun fight on light tackle, the smaller coastal sharks are thick in the area with the bluefish. Remember, if you plan to target sharks for the shoreline you are required to have the land based shark permit.
