The water is warming and the weather is right to be on the tarpon bite. The fish are here and in a good mood so far. Our waters are beautiful, teaming with bait. It is setting up to be an epic season for the silver king. Tarpon fishing charters are filling up early this year. With the warm conditions we are already on the hunt. So book your tarpon fishing charter today.
The tarpon seem to be staying close to the beach so far. One of there main food sources, the threadfin hearing have been staying offshore. There is a lot of smaller bait on the beach. The tarpon are gouging on the smaller beach bait. Not sure if the larger threadfins will come inshore. This creates a different strategy for the tarpon fishing charter. This is what we usually see in the fall when the fish are heading south for winter. The tarpon are not keying on one big bait. They are taking mouthfuls of smaller bait. In this situation you can through a whitebait at them and hope they find it. I like to put a pinfish in were they are feeding. This seems to work well as does cut bait under the frenzying fish will also work.
https://www.bonefishtarpontrust.org/Tarpon fishing charter is a hunt and a challenge which I enjoy. The best part about it is we can let them go in the end. Try and use the wright gear so the fish can be released unharmed because too light of gear can keep the fish out there for shark bait. Looking forward to a great tarpon fishing charter season. The fish are in our waters earlier and in good numbers. Let’s hope for a lot of calm days and rolling fish. We can all enjoy this great species and lets give respect to other anglers.
