2020 Islamorada Tarpon Season is here!

***The Keys are officially reopened.  Tarpon fishing specifically had been a little tough early July, but as of today (the 14th) it really picked up and I’m hoping these fish will stick around for a while!  August can still be good the possibility is there, but a little more hit & miss.  Same with September – but last year we had some very good fishing for other stuff in September (big snook, redfish, etc…)  I’m all booked up through the rest of July but don’t be afraid to ask I’ve had some cancellations due to COVID here and there short notice… but mid August through September is fairly wide open***

IMPORTANT: All anglers starting Jan 10th, 2019 will be required to have an Everglades Visitors Pass when fishing in the park.  You can obtain one via internet/phone at http://www.yourpassnow.com and select Everglades National Park.  Most of my fishing is inside the park, so check with me but more than likely you will need one.  You can also buy an annual/lifetime pass at store.usgs.gov. However if we are tarpon fishing locally around bridges it will not be necessary – though I am not doing this so much these days.  Just check with me beforehand.
