tampa tarpon fishing

The Tarpon (a.k.a. Silver King) will grace us with her presence this summer as she does every summer. We can now put all the restless nights dreaming about that battle behind us and make those dreams a reality. People travel all over Florida in search for a battle with the Silver King. Let your search end here. Tarpon fishing Tampa, Florida is one of the best places in the World. Our beautiful beaches are the feeding grounds for the world famous Tarpon during the summer months. So if you want to test your skills and battle the Sliver King, you have come to the right place. I lie in bed at night reliving the events of last summer:

Jumping the silver king

The sun breaks the Tampa Bay horizon with one of Florida’s famous beaches in the foreground. The water is flat clam, its emerald green reflection shines in my eyes. As I scan the horizon, I see something break the surface. As it approaches, I see what I have been dreaming about all winter, one of Florida’s premier game species, the beautiful Tarpon (a.k.a. Silver King).  I have one shot to present this bait. I tell myself “don’t screw this up”. I pitch the crab to her. She looks at it as though she wants to pass it up. I think to myself “there will be more”. Before my heart gets to the next beat, she turns and devours my bait. BZZZZZZZZZZZZ! FISH ON! 

She runs over a hundred yards of line off in one burst, and launches in the air, head breaking the surface first, and sun shining off her silver scales. The tarp’ is now four feet in the air, and my line goes slack.  I reel in my line and re-bait, and scan the water. I see something break the surface. Here we go again…

let this memory become yours !

Tampa, Florida Tarpon fishing runs from the end of April through early August with peak season being May and June. We will fish with light tackle spinning gear outfitted with 50lb braid line. Live bait: crabs, threadfins, and pinfish will be our bait of choice. The Tarpon we will battle will range from 60 lb to 150 lb, with the possibility of 150 plus pounders landed. It’s not uncommon to battle these beautiful fish for over forty-five minutes. We will Tarpon fish some of Florida’s world famous beaches and bridges. So come join me this summer and let’s make those dreams a reality!
