September Tarpon Fishing Report

Sep 1, 2023

Tarpon season is NEVER over!!!

As usual next week I am headed back to the Florida Everglades till the end of October.  The fall run is one of my favorite times of year to target tarpon in the Everglades.

This year I am still open September 15th, 21st, 24th, 25th, 28th-30th and October 1st-3rd.  The rest is already booked solid.

Every day in May 2023 I fished for tarpon in the Everglades.  Every day was a success.  With the major decline in the tarpon fishing here at home, it is a no brainer that I will be fishing there all of May and June 2024.  The Everglades is like no other place in the world.  Multiple tarpon hooked every day on spin and fly.  We caught a bunch of big snook there 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 part of July as well.

Till next time,
