May has been a very busy month and fishing has not disappointed. The Tarpon are here in huge numbers. A majority of my fishing charters have been targeting Tarpon. We have been finding very large schools of fish along the beaches, enjoying the shows as they roll and free jump all around the boat. A well placed crab under a cork is a sure bet for the hook up of a life time. My clients have been landing some great fish and “jumping” even more. It has been an excellent Tarpon season and there is still time and dates available to check it off your bucket list.
For clients who haven’t wanted to target Tarpon during their fishing charters, or the fews days it has been too windy, the snook and redfish fishing has been excellent. Large snook and redfish are coming into the area right on schedule. We have been catching a lot of smaller fish while landing some big ones and getting broken off by some even bigger ones. Southwest Florida fishing is excellent right now, book your trip soon.
