Fishing Report April 20th, 2019

Tarpon season 2019 is finally here!!!

The tarpon are pouring in.  There are tarpon in the sound, along the beaches and up in the harbor.

Lately with the windy weather the last couple days, I have been fishing smaller resident tarpon way back in the rivers and canals with light tackle.

April-August is the peak season in the Boca Grande/Charlotte Harbor area.  I still have a few openings in May and June. 

With the consistent weather this past fall the tarpon fishing in the Everglades was on fire.  I am already booking dates for our fall in the Everglades.  We will be out of Flamingo late September and all of October fishing for tarpon in the wilderness of the Florida Everglades.  For more information check out:

Till next time,
