Report: Bethune Park (ICW)

I intended to spend my day fishing for whiting from the surf, but the winds were 15 mph sustained with 25 mph gusts and seas of 8-10 feet. So I decided to try Bethune Park on the ICW in New Smyrna.

I have heard good things about this park and friends have said they have caught a fair amount of trout from this area….

Well, today was not my day! I was skunked, that is if you don’t count trash fish, and I don’t.

The water was EXTREMELY high and drity1

Good news is I did see a few free swimming shrimp, that is a good sign for the Winter Shrimp Run!
