Fort Myers Tarpon Fishing Charters

Fort Myers Tarpon Fishing ChartersWe offer Fort Myers Tarpon fishing charters and Ft Myers Beach Tarpon fishing charters for our resident Tarpon, not the hit or miss migrating Tarpon in the Gulf of Mexico. They bite everyday and the fishing begins in April and runs thru the end of October most years.Nearly every fisherman in the world wants to catch a Tarpon and check it off of their lifetime bucket list. The Fort Myers and Fort Myers Beach area of Florida is the number one destination for Tarpon fishing from April through October each year.

The start of the bite coincides with the point where water temperatures reach 80° on a consistent basis. Sometimes this can occur as early as the middle of March, while other years it may not be until the first part of May.  So much depends on how many days with lows in the 40’s and l50’s we had. That’s why you should always call us if you really want to catch a Tarpon but will be here early to mid March you just never know so always be sure to call or email us to see how realistic your chances are. The biggest factor is water temperature, and once the water hits 80 degrees the Tarpon seem to start biting immediately. This April bite can be the fastest and most thrilling Tarpon fishing of the year. In addition we offer Fort Myers and Ft Myers Beach fly fishing charters for Tarpon. More Charter Info
