Florida Tarpon Fishing Report

Dec 9, 2020

The best part of the season is FINALLY here!!!

With the spawn over the tarpon only have one thing on their mind…food.

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

Late July and August is my favorite part of the season for many reasons.  The biggest reason is the crowds of May and June have gone.  I still have openings later this month as well as early August.

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.  Only two days last fall we didn’t have 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 2020 I will be fishing the Everglades out of Flamingo/upper Keys September and October.  I am still open October 2nd, 7th, 8th and 12th.

If you like to fish with spinning rods or fly rods the Everglades is a true tarpon fishing adventure you will never forget.  For more information check out: Gladestarpon.com
