About Fishing in Flagler Beach

Flagler Beach Fishing Charters

Visiting Flagler Beach is a bit like taking a step back to a simpler time. It’s a small town, not much bigger than 4 square miles, and reminds many of Old Florida with small businesses and family-owned restaurants. Located on Florida’s East Coast, Flagler Beach is just north of Daytona Beach and Ormond Beach. The same famous white sandy beaches cover the city’s six-miles of coastline. On the west side of Flagler Beach is the Matanzas River. This 23-mile river starts near St. Augustine and flows south creating intercoastal waters before joining with the Halifax River. Those fishing the Matanzas River will find trout, redfish, flounder, cobia, or kingfish at the end of their line. Tarpon are also occasionally found in the river, depending on the season. The river is dependent on the tides; anglers should keep that in mind when choosing when to cast a line. A very popular fishing spot in Flagler Beach is the pier located on 2nd Street. The pier stretches 806 feet into the Atlantic Ocean and offers anglers spectacular fishing opportunities. The pier is open 365 days a year from 6AM to midnight; there is a bait shop at the pier that offers tackle, convenience and souvenir items. Anglers will need to purchase a pass before dropping a line; daily, seasonal, single, and family passes are available.

Flagler Beach Inshore Fishing

Charters in Flagler Beach that are fishing the inshore waters are sure to find sheepshead, trout, redfish, tarpon, snook, and flounder, just to name a few. Kayak fishing is a very popular technique used when targeting these inshore species. Kayak fishing gets anglers up close to the action, literally. Sitting in the kayak, anglers are dipping their paddles and fingers into the water. The smooth paddle-action allows anglers to sneak up on schools of fish. Good balance and minimal gear is a must for this type of fishing. Paddleboard fishing is another option and very similar to kayak fishing. Anglers wanting to kayak or paddleboard fish in Flagler Beach should launch from Gamble Rogers State Park where a ramp is easily accessible. Trout, redfish, and whiting are species waiting for your bait while kayak fishing in Flagler Beach. Trout, also known as spotted seatrout or speckled trout, have lean bodies and distinguishable spots along their backs. They are a favorite fish to catch for fishermen and women, as they are avid feeders and put up a good fight. The time of day will determine where to find trout: early mornings will have them near the shallow waters, and as the temperatures warm they move to deeper waters. They are bottom dwellers and enjoy eating shrimp, minnows, mullet, and crab. Sometimes when anglers are fishing for trout they’ll pick up a red instead. “Red” being redfish, or red drum. They are usually in the same area and feed on the same bait, shrimp and crab. Redfish are tan or bronze with a distinct black dot at the beginning of their tail.

Flagler Beach Offshore Fishing

Flagler Beach offshore charters target a variety of species, including king mackerel, mahi mahi, marlin, sailfish, snapper, grouper, sharks, and more. King Mackerel, also known as kingfish, are identified by the thin yet prominent lateral line that takes a sharp turn in the middle of their body. They can grow up to 5 feet and weigh over 100 pounds. Flagler Beach captains will use light to medium-action rods with shiny live bait. Examples include minnows, herring, and even Spanish mackerel. The larger the bait, the larger the king on the line. Captains will typically have several lines in the water to attract king mackerel to the boat. Once landed, get ready for a delicious dinner as kingfish make a tasty meal. Charters in the Flagler Beach area will typically fish the Atlantic Ocean with techniques such as trolling or bottom fishing. Trolling is when the captain drives the boat with bait or lures running through the water over a large area. The bait can be dropped to the desired depth with the help of downriggers and outriggers. This technique is great for catching mahi mahi, tuna, or marlin. The speed of the boat is an important factor in trolling, and Flagler Beach captains have years of experience perfecting this technique. Bottom fishing is another way to catch offshore species in Flagler Beach. Anglers looking to hook up with snapper or grouper will bottom fish near reefs and wrecks. Bottom fishing is exactly what it sounds like: fishing the bottom of the ocean floor. Captains in Flagler Beach typically drift bottom fish, as opposed to anchoring, as this allows them to cover a larger area. Mutton snapper, red snapper, and vermillion snapper are just a few species caught with this technique.
