Timing Your Fly Fishing For Tarpon Charter

Fort Myers Tarpon Season is open all year, it is however 100% catch and release. There isn’t any closed  season. We catch Tarpon every month of the year, but the best time to go Tarpon fishing in Fort Myers is from early April until October. As you can see from the table to the left, Tarpon do don’t like water temperatures below 80°.

One of the keys to planning your Tarpon Charter is to monitor the March weather here in Fort Myers.  If the area is having above normal high temps and the lows are in the high 60’s you can bet that by April 1st the resident Tarpon will we be feeding.

Resident Fort Myers Tarpon - Dependable Everyday

On our Fort Myers fly fishing charters for Tarpon we focus on our resident Tarpon, they are dependable biters and the fly fishing is good from April thru early October. The biggest factor is water temperature and the frequency of passing cold fronts during the cool water months. As a general rule starting sometime in early April the Tarpon will be moving out of their wintering areas and begin to feed heavily. This is the fastest and most thrilling Tarpon fishing of the year, and when the Tarpon turn on in the early spring the bite is nothing short of remarkable.

Our Tarpon fly fishing Charters are always early morning, from first light until about 11am. This is the very best time of the day to fly fish and that first 1/2 hour of the day is always big Tarpon time. The great part of an early morning Tarpon fishing charter is that you have the rest of the day to enjoy the Fort Myers area where there is lots to see and do. September and October can be some of the best fishing of the year and the fishing pressure is far less than the spring and summer. So keep the fall in mind when thinking about when you want to book your Tarpon fishing charter.

What To Expect On Your Fort Myers Fly Fishing Charters For Tarpon

On our typical Fort Myers Fly Fishing Charters For Tarpon we will be leaving approximately 30 to 40 minutes before sunrise. We went to have you rigged and ready to go at first light when the fish turn on. Invariably the biggest fish of the day always seem to come in that first 30 minutes of low light. You will be casting flies to rolling feeding Tarpon for the entire charter, and while it’s nice to know you are constantly on fish don’t forget, they are Tarpon.

There’s nothing more frustrating in fishing than having a giant fish roll right where you just cast, however I don’t believe there is a better way to catch a Tarpon than fly fishing. That’s just how Tarpon are and when you accept that fact, you’ll have a much better time. Most days the Tarpon will slow down by about 10 AM although on occasion they will continue to feed until around 11AM.  The truest thing we can say about Tarpon is that on any given day you never know exactly how they’re going to behave regardless of what they did the day before, I think they evolved to frustrate fly fisherman. So get ready for a fun and exciting day on the water!
