PASSIONATE ANGLERS KNOW: There’s nothing quite like casting a line and hauling up a trout, redfish, or mahi-mahi. And opportunities abound in New Smyrna Beach. Angle off the new riverside fishing pier at Smyrna Dunes Park; in keeping with the area’s eco ideals, composite lumber made of recycled plastic materials was used in the pier’s construction. You’ll also find flats and lakes perfect for fishing. Or get out on the water with a fishing charter like Edgewater River Guide and end the day with a proud haul (and some tales). What do you do with your bounty? Head to a catch-and-cook spot, like JB’s Fish Camp, which will clean your fish and cook it up however you like.
