Do Some Big Game Fishing in the Everglades!

Tarpon is the fish that led to the sport of big game fishing! In 1885, William Wood caught the first tarpon on rod and reel and put Southwest Florida on the map, and over 100 years later, we are still considered the number one tarpon fishing destination in the world.

Tarpon grows to over 200 pounds, and when hooked, it’s been compared to roping a wild Bronco. With 10-foot leaps in the air and a will to live, they give fishermen the most epic battles that they have ever witnessed. Most tarpon range from 60 to 120 pounds, with frequent hookups in excess of 150 pounds.

Seeing these fish cruising by in pairs or schools of 100 fish or more makes for an incredible day of saltwater fishing and sight-fishing. Make a cast, watch the tarpon eat the fly, then battle the fish for over 20 minutes, tag the tarpon, and take a photo of a lifetime! While the fish remains in the water for revival and release, ponder in amazement with the utmost respect and watch the silver king gallantly swim away.

Tarpon are great migratory fish moving along the Gulf Coast from south to north, stopping in the Everglades and ending up in Boca Grande Pass. Depending on the time of year and where the migration is, we determine where you have the best chance of hooking your tarpon of a lifetime. The best months are March all the way through August, but they can still be hunted down with success in the winter and fall months in the deep Everglades estuaries.
