New Smyrna Beach

Coming over for a family reunion this weekend and want to do some fishing. First chartered a boat but forecast is 10 foot seas and 15-20 mph winds. Any suggestion for bridge or protected shoreline fishing?

    If you don't mind walking a little bit, you can go to Smyrna Dunes Park and find a little protection from the wind on the backside of the inlet, near the Coast Guard station. The wind should have some bait and activity moving through the inlet, and there will be the usual cast of blues, jacks, ladyfish etc. with the chance of picking up a nice red or two.

    You can always go to the park/dog park at the north end of NSB and fish the inside of the inlet.

    Thanks. Was looking at that on google earth, what can be caught there and do you think it would be worth trying given the high winds making it murky?

    NSB Photog's post sounds good. Bring a cast net for mullet.

    These are the same place you can go either way and then it circles back around. Really cool place with a lot of room if you walk far enough.

    I figured that out looking at google earth. Might go to the parking lot and head west to the beach on the inside or is it much better near the tip?
