Fishing Tarpon Around Florida
People say if there’s any fish worth fishing in Florida, it’s a Tarpon. Also, these fish are fast, they put up a good fight, and have said to be “Everything you could want in a fish”. Any avid fisherman will tell you, these are majestic fish that are as fun as they are unpredictable.
These fish require lead line that will hold up against how big these guys can get, we recommend any kind of line that is tested for over 30lbs. Live bait is recommended, but Tarpon have been known to bite large baitfish as well. If you’re on your fishing boat trolling we recommend using large spoons (spoon color will vary with sun conditions), large jiggs, and lipped plugs. Fly fishing (recommended) should utilize streamers with scissor-action, and castors have had success with surface plugs and jerk plugs.
These fish are known for jumping out of the water as you battle to get them to the boat, and have been seen jumping as high as 10 ft out of the water. It’s not uncommon for these fish to get over 7 ft. and over 100 lbs. Also, they mostly stick to shallow shores and close to land. Tarpon are one of the biggest fish that can be caught without the use of a boat. Although having a boat on the Gulf Coast in the Florida panhandle can be quite rewarding. Speaking of boats, if you have a fishing boat that you want to sell we are interested!
