Daytona Beach Fishing Report 7/29/2014
Captain Eric Greenstein
The big summer Tarpon are starting to show themselves in Ormond. We jumped a couple 30 pound fish a few days ago on a charter in Daytona Beach around the bridges. Live Menhaden make the best bait if you can find them. If not, live mullet and large live shrimp will also get the job done. Beef up the leader to 40-50lb and if your fishing near structure 20-30 pound main line will help horse them away. Big Jacks are also everywhere right now and are a blast on light tackle. Topwater lures work great if they are busting bait at the surface. Hang on tight, these bruisers run hard!
