Florida Tarpon Fishing Report

Apr 29, 2021

Tarpon season 2021 is well underway!!!

Thousands of tarpon have arrived in our area.  The yearly gathering has begun.

There are tarpon along the beaches, passes and back bays.

April-August is the peak of the tarpon migration in the Boca Grande/Charlotte Harbor area.  I still have a few openings this season.   May 9th and June 12th have opened and are now available.  I have a few more openings in July and August, my favorite part of the season.

I will be back down this fall fishing the Florida Everglades.  With the mild weather and the lack of cold fronts, just like last fall, the fishing was exceptional.  Every day we had multiple opportunities.  Every day last fall we had a tarpon boatside for a photo session.  With tarpon fishing those numbers are unbelievable.  Check out my Facebook page and Instagram to see the photos and videos from the trip.

Fall 2021, I will be fishing the Everglades out of Flamingo/upper Keys September and October.  If you like to fish with spinning rods or fly rods this is a true tarpon fishing adventure you will never forget.  For more information check out: Gladestarpon.com
