The wife and I are thinking about a vacation the second week of July back the central Florida and visiting old friends. I would like to spend at least one day fishing with my sons. 18, 13, and probably the 8 year old. I am torn between the flats for reds or Atlantic for dolphin. Any suggestions?
I dream of a day when chickens can cross the road without having their motives questioned.
I thought about chartering you but I don't know if I want to go that far south
If you have never fished for Reds before on the Indian River, then that is what you need to do IMO. I lived in Daytona Beach for a few years which is just North of there. We fished it more than a few times and it's the best Redfish spot in the world. The flats are untouched in the sanctuary so the only thing you see that isn't 100% natural is the Kennedy Space Station building 40 miles South that is like 70 stories tall. Everything else is just like it was when Ponce De Leon found it in 1513. It's world renowned and the best guide there for a reason. If you guys are into fly fishing, you can't beat it. But spinning outfits work well too, We've seen schools of 40 pound Reds 100 strong tailing in just a few feet of water. I could go on and on about that place, it's great.
As far as offshore, Central Florida is not known for their great offshore fishing. You can definitely catch fish, but it's a little more work.
Personally. I like offshore fishing better than inshore. It takes some pretty good fishing to beat it. But in this case it's one of the best spots in the entire world for inshore in a pristine environment. It's a lot more work with the sight casting and all and the boats smaller and more cramped for 3 people so you have to take turns on who takes point. But in the end, it's a lot more rewarding. If you have never been before, that would be my pick. If you have, then I might take my chances and head offshore looking for bigger fish. The Gulf Stream is about 30 miles out and if I went I'd head there for a chance with not only dolphin but bilfish as well.
