Tarpon start to show up in the spring, depending on the water temperature. We will start seeing them and hear of a few fish being caught in April and earlier if it is mild. It does not get into full swing till the middle or end of April. Sea Reed Charters likes to give you the best opportunity till catch a tarpon so we like to start scheduling at the end of April through the end of June. These fish are migrating in large number from the south to the north and will mostly be out of the area by July. They will head back through and give us another window of opportunity in August and September.
If you have never experienced this beautiful game fish, it is a must do.
Tarpon are very acrobatic and known for there jumps and leaps. These fish range from 60 pounds all the way up to 200 pounds and provide adrenaline filled battles. It is a hunt for we are looking for tarpon rolling on the surface to fill there air bladders and then we move in and cast at the school.
