I live in Daytona Beach, just 4 miles from the Main Street Pier. I highly advise against going there. You'll need to park several blocks away, very long walk down city streets carrying your equipment.
The Pier is more setup for out of town tourist who rent the piers own rods. Not set up for real fisherman. Oh, did I mention its in the heard of Daytona Beach's Crack&Drug district?? You wouldn't catch me down there after about 6PM!

. It shows the SunGlow pier is open 24 hours, this recently changed. SunGlow now is only open until 11AM, I verifed this with a phone call. Also the owners at SunGlow have gotten a little "snotty" this year, don't know what the problem down there is. I use to fish there alot.
One of the best piers in the area is Flagler Pier located about 20 miles north of Daytona Beach along A1A.
Ponce Inlet also is a nice place to fish but closes at sunset.
If you want to fish late at night you're only choice is surf fishing. Daytona isn't good as the beach is VERY flat. Ormond was good until this year as it has also turned pretty flat. Again you need to drive to Flagler Beach, starting about North 15th St and go north. The beach still has some structure left to it.
Its ashame, I live 4 miles from the ocean but have to drive 50 miles round trip to get to a half decent fishing spot....
