Fort Myers Tarpon Fishing Charters & Fishing Guide Service
Tarpon, also known as the Silver King are without question the king of Florida's inshore waterways, even though the largest are in fact, female. The first Tarpon ever caught on rod and reel was in 1855 using a thumb stall reel with white linen line right here fishing Sanibel Island, in Tarpon Bay. Tarpon are prized not only for their size but also because of the fight they put up and their amazing ability to leap out of the water. The average size of Tarpon our clients catch is 68" long and average 120 lbs. Tarpon season is Late April through August.
WHAT TO EXPECT ON YOUR TARPON FISHING CHARTER
FishSkinner Fishing Charters offers a 6 or 8 hour Tarpon fishing charter with up to 4 passengers (other than the captain) occupying the vessel. On a typical trip we leave the boat ramp at 8 a.m. It may be necessary to leave earlier if the captain thinks the bite will be better. If needed, we can acquire additional captains to accommodate larger groups. When fishing for Tarpon there are many different methods such as drifting, site casting, anchoring etc... The approach for the day will be determined by the weather, temperament of the fish, location and tides. We provide everything you will need for your charter. All you will need is a positive attitude and personal effects such as hats, sunscreen and sunglasses. Feel free to CONTACT US with any questions.
