Well tarpon season seems to be in full swing now getting into mid March. Late cold fronts in February and even one a couple weeks ago in early March had held off the big droves of tarpon from showing up. This isn’t always a bad thing though especially for our prime months of April, May, and June. Sometimes if the fishing gets red hot in February/March it seems like the May/June timeframe sometimes gets tougher. So hopefully this bodes well for the later ‘prime season’ months. This past weekend we had a few flat calm days and I figured the tarpon would show up hot & heavy and they did. I didn’t fish the last couple days but heard good reports. We got out today and it was very good we went 4 for 4 on tarpon and only spent a couple hours doing it as my guys didn’t want to pull on big critters all day, so we spent the last half of the day catching a good number of snook. But now we’ll pretty much be in full on tarpon mode the next several months.
I’m pretty much booked up for all of April but I haven’t started booking many May dates yet, only for regulars and customers who are looking to mount a trophy tarpon catch. If you are in the latter category drop me a line and we can get you in on prime May tarpon dates. Otherwise I’ll be opening up my May days to new customers at the end of this month. Otherwise I have Capt. Brandon Storin running my old boat and he’s been doing very well with the tarpon too and he’s taking all the advanced bookings he can get.
