Detailed Info On Our Tarpon Charters

Our Fort Myers Tarpon fishing charters focus on our resident Tarpon, they are dependable biters and the 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 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 the bite is nothing short of remarkable.

Our Tarpon Charters are always early morning, from first light until about 11am. This is the very best time of the day to 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.

What To Expect On Your Tarpon Charter

On our typical Fort Myers Tarpon fishing charter 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 lures 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. That’s just how Tarpon are and when you accept that fact, you’ll have a much better time. Most days the fish have quite a down by about 10 AM although on occasion they will continue to feed the entire day. 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 fisherman.

This video shows just how fast the Tarpon action can be, it was shot in early June. You will be fly fishing from a boat, not a kayak, just in case you wondered! Look at the Tarpon busting near the bank, you can see how many are in this hole. Most of these Tarpon are about 35″, which is a bit smaller than the average Tarpon our clients catch. Our Fort Myers fly fishing for Tarpon charters are always early morning, from first light until about 11am. This is the very best time of the day to fish and that first 1/2 hour of the day is always big Tarpon time.

Planning For Your Tarpon Fishing Charter

On our Fort Myers Tarpon fishing charters we have to limit the number of fishermen to a maximum of 3. If you think about it, having more than three people casting lures at the same time is never a good idea. Our three fisherman rule has served us well for many years of safe fun fishing day and night. So please remember when booking your Tarpon fishing charter that you need to keep your group to three or less anglers and everyone will have a great time. You need to book as far in advance as possible, Tarpon fishing is very popular and we fill up early for the Spring and summer season.

Kids Under 14 On Your Tarpon Charter
Since everyone will be casting it has been our experience that kids under 14 don’t have the upper body strength to fight a big strong fish. However we realize that every child is different, especially at 14. Please call us if you have kids under 14 that you feel have the fishing skills and upper body strength to fish effectively.
