Tarpon Tampa Fishing Guide
This is by far the single most exciting thing you can do on the water! Warm weather, crystal clear water, and big game fish! Imagine cruising along the beach at sunrise looking for powerful fish that weigh up to 200lbs. Once we’ve spotted them, we move in quietly to present a bait, a 100lb fish eats it and leaps into the air! You hold onto the rod for dear life as the Silver King hits the water and attempts to rip 300 yards of line off of the real at a breakneck pace.
Tarpon invade Tampa by the 10’s of thousands during the months of May, June, and July. Tampa is home to one of the largest Tarpon migrations in the world as they come here to gorge themselves in preparation for spawning. We take advantage of this opportunity every summer as we chase the mighty tarpon. Learn More – Tarpon Fishing Charters
