This trip is on most anglers bucket list, I've had clients travel thousands of miles to catch what we call the "Silver King". This huge a majestic fish can weigh up to 200+ pounds and jump upwards of 8 feet out of the water. If you want to experience a trip of a lifetime look no further. A typical tarpon season runs from about April to October but the best time in the Boca Grande area is MAY- July. For more information please feel free to contact me.

Tarpon are considered one of the greatest saltwater game fish. They are prized not only because of the great size but also because of the fight they put up and their spectacular leaping ability. They are boney fish and their meat is not desirable, so most are released after they are caught.
State record 243 lb, Caught near Key West

During the months of May and June we experience a "Hill Tide" this is caused on our new and full moon phases. This causes a large amount of water in charlotte harbor to flush out millions of crabs on the surface of Boca Grande pass in a matter of a few hours causing a feeding frenzy amongst the tarpon. Our live wells will be loaded with crabs ready to cast at the hungry tarpon. On these select tides it in not uncommon to hook several fish in a matter of hours.
Since tarpon are a migratory fish they cannot be caught consistanly year round.
