Tarpon Season is in Full Swing in Boca Grande

By May 20, 2017 May 29th, 2017 Fishing Report

It’s mid-May and we are in full blown tarpon fishing mode. Fish are thick and they are chewing the bottom out of the boat. We’ve been fishing them a couple of different ways – depending on the tide and wind direction. We have fished artificial lures in the pass as well as sight fished tarpon on the beach with live crabs.  Unless it’s a total weather disaster outside, we can hook up on tarpon no matter what.

If you have never battled the mighty “Silver King”, I still have a few days open through the en of June in Boca Grande and then in July I will be tarpon fishing the Tampa Bay area. Make sure to hit me up as soon as you can to make sure you get a date with a great tide!
