How to Do Florida: Visit New Smyrna Beach, Florida


– [Voiceover] This How
to Do Florida segment is presented by VISIT FLORIDA. – [Chad] Hey, I don’t
wanna rub it in here, but let’s face it. We live where most people vacation. So options for getaways are plentiful. Kristi and I are heading
to New Smyrna Beach just south of Daytona
Beach on what’s known as Florida’s fun coast. This fantastic little
gem of a beach town has everything you could want. Great accommodations, terrific dining, shopping, tons of activities, and some of the most beautiful beaches. To do a getaway right,
nothing beats staying at a local bed and breakfast. Not only are the rooms
uniquely quaint and charming, but the staff can be
invaluable in helping you decide where to go and
what to do to make the most of your time together. New Smyrna Beach has a wide
variety of places to stay. From beach houses, condos, to hotels. – I love coming to a bed
and breakfast because it’s just full of decorating ideas. Each room has it’s own unique flair. – [Chad] We’re fishing today
with Bill and Bobby Fisher. – I’m the captain. – I’m the captain. – [Chad] They’re taking us
out on the Indian River Lagoon on this picture perfect Florida morning. We find a good spot and
before I can even get my bait in the water. – Wow! – What is that? – Giant. – Oh my gosh, she’s got a huge trout. That is a monster.
– Beautiful. – We’ve been out here
for maybe five minutes, and Kristi just pulled
in a big, big trout. – Bye bye, fishy. Wow, look at that. – Oh my gosh, let me get
out of your way here, girl. Okay so I wanted to do this fishing trip, and Kristi’s already like just killing me. This weekend getaway is
quickly turning into my wife’s getting away with all the fish. Watch it, watch it. – I got one. It’s a big one. What is that? Serious?
– Oh my gosh. – You got a snook. – My first snook, honey. – This girl is killing me. She’s caught way more trout than I have, and here it is, she
catches my favorite fish. You know, you come out here with a guide, you learn so much. These guys do this all the time. They live out here and
they know this area. They’re just a wealth of knowledge. So you’re not only catching fish, you’re learning about the
environment and it is just a full, full experience. – Yeah, these guys sure know
what they’re doing, don’t they? – Yeah, they do. – Don’t mess around at all. – Oh, something just slammed my bait here. Come on, baby, come on, be a big trout. Be a big trout. Big snook. – Oh, that’s a catfish. – Sail cat. – That’s embarrassing. (laughs) – [Chad] Actually the embarrassing
part wasn’t the catfish. It was my wife hooked the
biggest fish of the day at the same time. – [Kristi] Oh, I got something. – [Chad] What have you
got over there, girl? – I got a real fish. – [Chad] Honey, help me get
this catfish off the hook. – You kidding me? – Honey, I need help
– No way! – [Chad] Getting this
catfish off the hook. – He’s gonna break my rod. – I’ve seen Kristi catch some big fish. This was a monster. Are you getting tired? You want me to tag him for you? – No. Smack your hands. You are not getting credit for this one. – Well I just said you need any help? I’m just trying to help you. This is a monster, monster red fish. – [Kristi] This is a red fish? – Yeah. – [Kristi] Look at that. Oh my gosh. – [Chad] Perfect. – Oh my gosh. This is like holding a child. – You’ve got to be kidding me. – That is giant. – [Chad] This is the biggest red fish you’ve ever caught, right? – Probably biggest fish I’ve ever caught. – So is this fun? – [Kristi] This is amazing. He is a fighter. – She caught the biggest
red fish in her life. – Thanks for the fun adventure. – That’s what really
motivates us to go tomorrow, the next day and the day after. And the smile on her face
was just unbelievable. – Bye bye. – My understanding that Chad
was the fisherman out here, but I don’t believe
that was the case today. – Nope. – Yeah, I don’t know
how I feel about this. – It’s alright. (laughs) – You know, one of the many
iconic features here in New Smyrna Beach is
where we are right now, Disappearing Island. As you can see, we’re right
here by the lighthouse and right near Ponce Inlet, and it’s basically a giant sand bar. It sits right here in the inlet. And it kind of comes
and goes with the tide. Great place to come up
here and pull your boat up, have a picnic, hang out and just relax. When you come here,
make sure you make it to Disappearing Island. – [Voiceover] View more videos at how to do Florida dot com. Presented by VISIT FLORIDA.
