It's Tarpon time!!! I know... I know... Tarpon have been around our area for months now... But, now is the time to go catch them. Late June/post- spawn can be some of the best Tarpon fishing of the year. Bites tend to come more frequently, although you won't see as many fish as in our pre-spawn season.
Inshore, our snook are also coming off a mid summer spawn, and are aggressively feeding, to stack up fat and protein. Mangrove snapper have moved into the bays and passes, and afford anglers the opportunity to take home great table fair after a hot day on the water. It's a fantastic time to go fishing in Southwest Florida.
