Boca Grande is world famous, and profoundly known as the Tarpon Fishing
Capital of the world! In the warmer months, typically beginning in mid-April, Tarpon ranging from 80-200lbs begin to Migrate south by the hundreds of thousands to seek food and warm water, prior to their spawn. This migration leads them right here to Boca Grande and Charlotte Harbor estuary. Boca Grande Pass is the deepest natural pass in the state with an extremely rich food source, making it prime habitat, giving Boca Grande the Tarpon Capital Title. When Targeting Tarpon, we will be fishing in Boca Grande Pass, Charlotte Harbor, and along the pristine beaches using live baits like Crab, Threadfin hearing, Pinfish as well as top of the line equipment. Anglers may also bring their own FLY tackle if desired but must be able to fit fly rod inside our rod locker.
Tarpon trip rates are based on 3 anglers (April-July) with an additional $100 charge for a 4th angler. (MAX OF 4 ANGLERS) Tarpon trip rates outside these months may vary. Tarpon trips that 8 hours or longer gives time for a 1-hour lunch break at one of the nearby top-rated restaurants on the water!
