tarpon fishing florida"Beach and The Charlotte Harbor Estuary": Charlotte Harbor Estuary is the state's largest natural estuary and the most productive wetlands in Florida. The estuary has a large watershed, including the Peace River, Caloosahatchee River and Myakka River basins and covering 12,653 square kilometers. In short, the Charlotte Harbor Estuary is staple to the entire reproductive cycle of global stocks of tarpon. It seems the fish are all, going there, leaving there or living there and that makes the estuary the most logical place to fish Florida tarpon.

Endless schools of unpressured  "happy" Florida tarpon. Recommended fishing charters for  both virgin and expert tarpon fly / flyfishing anglers. The average "beach" fish is 125 lbs.

Mid July - October 30

"Post Spawn" Tarpon Charters Are Our Specialty.

You may hear that that the “tarpon season” is over during this time while searching the Internet. This is the best time of year to avoid the crowds and fish tarpon during their post spawn stage of migration. Post spawn tarpon inhabit the Charlotte Harbor Estuary for one reason, to feed in regaining lost body fat from the rigors of spawning. The tarpon are hungry and very receptive to live bait and to those who love to fish tarpon by casting/trolling artificial lures on bass tackle. For fly fishermen, the waters are dark and often require “blind casting” areas of rolling tarpon. For this reason, the fly-fishing for tarpon at this time is best suited for hard-core fly-fisherman. Visit part 4 of the tarpon series for more details.
