FORT MYERS TARPON FISHING CHARTERS
Tarpon, also known as the Silver King, are without question the king of Florida's inshore waterways, even though the largest are in fact, female. The first Tarpon ever caught on rod and reel was in 1855 using a thumb stall reel with white linen line right here fishing Sanibel Island, in Tarpon Bay. They are prized not only because of their size but also because of the fight they put up and their amazing ability to leap out of the water. The average size of the Tarpon our clients catch is 68" long and average 120 lbs. Tarpon season in Fort Myers and the surrounding areas is from mid April and remain through most or all of August.
WHAT TO EXPECT ON YOUR TARPON CHARTER
Tarpon Fischer Charters offers either a 4, 6 or 8 hour charter with no more than 4 passengers (other than the captain) occupying the vessel. On a typical trip we leave the boat ramp at 8 a.m. When fishing, there are many different methods such as drifting, jigging, site casting, anchoring etc...The approach for the day will be determined by the weather, temperament of the fish and the tides. We provide everything you will need for your charter. All you need to bring is a positive attitude and your personal effects such as hats and sunglasses.
