We will launch at Palm Valley boat ramp under the 210 bridge. Low tide is 2:19 PM. I would launch at 11:00 AM.

Clousers, Crab and Shrimp patterns are good flies to use. I would not use heavy flies because there are a lot of oyster beds to get hung up on.
If you go South from the ramp there is good low tide fishing for miles. Some places along side of the intracoastal (ICW) can be good but boat traffic can be a problem. There are many creeks that you can go up into and find fish along both sides of ICW. The-Top Sport– map Daytona Beach to Jacksonville (map number N221) is a very good. Our own Capt. Larry Miniard is one of the guides that had input on the areas marked in this stretch of the ICW. Larry has lived and fished this area for most of his fishing career. 6 and 8 wt. rods with floating lines and a 9 ft. leader would be a good choice.
Palm Valley Outdoors is next to the ramp if you need any supplies. If you go South from the ramp a good area at Marker #3 on both sides, Marker #9 west side, behind Pine Island at Marker 20. The low tide is a minus 0.3 so do not stay too long back in those creeks. Let us know if you are coming and if you do not have a boat or kayak. We will try our best to get you with someone with as boat. I will have subs sandwich and chip for everyone to pick up at the ramp.
