We are taking a small vacation in the Daytona Beach by the Atlantic Ocean and also at the Clearwater area by the Gulf.
Taking a few surf rods to fish off the beach maybe off the local Pier.
What kind of fish should I hope for this time of the year (end of December)?

I fish the Skyway pier often.. Dont fish the surf at all .. But there is another pier in clearwater the pier60.
I think this time a year.. On the skyway there catching lots of grouper,seabass, and Sheepshead... during the day and silver trout at night.
Pier 60 probably lots of silver trout some small spanish mackerel, snook, maybe a red or 2 , sheepshead...
You just never know what you will catch here in Fl.
Theres also some Kings still around, False albecore, Spanish macks, Sheepshead , speckled trout, When you get to town ask the locals or call the piers.. My personal favorite is the Skyway
