Tarpon and snook fishing report May 2023

May 26, 2023

The decision to fish the Everglades in May was a great one!!!

Lots of tarpon and a few giant snook as a bonus.  Every day I fished in May was a success.  Multiple tarpon hooked every day.  There are a ton of big snook here as well.  We caught several giants each week.  I never targeted them.  We just hooked them on swimbaits while casting at tarpon.  Next year, 2024, I will be fishing here out of Flamingo/Key Largo for the months of May and June.  Depending on booking I might be here for July as well.

I am starting back fishing at home in the Venice/Boca Grande area June 1st.  I am excited to be back targeting the giants back home.  I have a few openings left in June.
