In the “Tarpon Capital of the World” – Boca Grande, fishing charters are eager to take you on a quest for the majestic “Silver King.” Blessed with rich wildlife and breathtaking scenery, the party doesn’t stop there. With the productive waters of the Gulf of Mexico at your fingertips, as well as luscious mangrove forests and prolific backcountry, this is a fishery with something for everyone.

While Tarpon fishing in the Boca Grande Pass is the main reason to visit, this charming town can cater to any angler. Closer to shore, you’ll find Snook, Redfish, Trout, and Pompano hiding in the flats and mangroves. For some more action, head a little further to the reefs and wrecks to bottom fish for Red Snapper, Grouper, King Mackerel, as well as target the time-honored Florida favorite – Cobia.

With a variety of trips on offer, you’ll find that everything you need can be accommodated. Trips range anywhere from four to over ten hours, so you can make your choice depending on how much time you have. You’ll find a number of trips specifically targeting the Silver King, but also specialized trips for Goliath Grouper and Sharks for those of you looking for an adrenaline rush.

Setting foot in Boca Grande, you’ll find fishing charters anywhere you turn. Head down to Whidden’s Marina or the Boca Grande Bayou where most of them are located, waiting to take you on a special fishing adventure!

Rules & Regulations

If you’re exploring this productive fishery on a charter boat, you don’t need to worry about a fishing license, as it comes included in the trip. Seeing as Tarpon fishing is done for the thrill and the sporting aspect of it, there are strict regulations on catching and releasing them. To make sure you’re fishing legally, book a trip with a reputable captain, and he’ll update you on all other bag and size limits.

January

This is a very nice time to be fishing the backcountry because the fish have started moving into the warmer waters in earnest.

February

Snook and Redfish inhabit many of the same areas this time of year, and poling along the flats can be especially rewarding.

March

By the end of March, the water temperature should warm up to around 75–80°F. This means better bait, as well as more game fish.

April

The start of the Silver King season! Thousands upon thousands of Tarpon migrate to these waters to breed, and some will stay through November.

May

Probably the best time to be fly fishing during the entire year. Fly fishing for Tarpon is no small feat, so make sure to have a captain who knows his stuff.

June

Things may vary from year to year, but June is usually the peak of Silver King season. The Boca Grande Pass is absolutely packed with anglers having fun.

July

The weather starts being hot and humid, and it’s a good idea to go a bit further out to bottom fish at the reefs and wrecks.

August

While this is a great time to catch plenty of fish, it’s also incredibly hot. Probably the best time for Snook during the entire year.

September

Some may think it’s too late to be fishing for the Silver King, but they are sorely mistaken. Waters around the pass are great, and it’s cheaper now. 

October

Around the start of the month, the tides start getting lower and lower, making for a great chance to do some sight fishing for Cobia.

November

November is usually when winter starts in earnest, but that doesn’t seem to bother the Redfish one bit, which is great as Snook start moving out.

December

At this time of year, shrimp is your live bait of choice, and you can catch some big and delicious Pompano with it before the end of the year.

Go with a captain. Be prepared for rain, sun, wind and possibly rough conditions. It is outdoor activity on the water. It is a roller coaster ride, enjoy the adventure.

Tarpon trip with son and a friend. The boat was clean and well maintained. The tarpon bite was a bit off per the captain. It was also fairly windy which resulted into some medium sized swells 3-4 feet I wuld guess. Made for a bit of an unsteady ride. Some additonal sitting surfaces with cushioning would hav made things more comfortable. However we did manage to bring 1 tarpon to the boat and fought 3 others on the line for reasonable period of time, all in all it was a pretty good trip.

Capt Keith was very professional and put us on fish as soon as the tide changed. We had four hooked and brought two to the side of the boat. The largest fish went 150-160lbs. Beat my old record of 115lbs We cut the trip short an hour due to inclement weather heading our way. Better to err on the side of caution so we can fish another day. Tight Lines. Walter Piliy

Captain Chris is an excellent guide. He has great equipment that he keeps very clean and tidy. You can tell he has a great knowledge of the area, where to fish, and how to fish. We just had a great day. I highly recommend Chris. Couldn’t have asked for a better day. If we get down there again and go fishing we will definitely use Chris.

Let me start by saying Chris’s communication was fast and friendly. His boat was immaculate and very current. He worked hard all day to put us on fish and we were very successful. Chris’s friendly demeanor was a pleasant surprise and everyone in our group enjoyed his stories and he ours. We all would highly recommend using Captain Chris for your next fishing trip as we will certainly be back on his boat next time we go fishing!!!

Captain Jeff was nice and knowledgeable. If we weren’t on fish, we were on the the next spot. He kept up conversation and took care of our less experienced angler. Was a good time and would recommend.

Captain Chris is a great guy and very knowledgeable guide. We went shark fishing and caught 2 7’ long sand sharks, tagged them and let them go. The trip was so fun and everything my 15 year old son wanted when he asked to go shark fishing. We highly recommend this charter, we will use him again.

We had the best day of fishing with Captain Scott that we have had in Florida. He is personable, patient and fun to joke with. Put us on several good fishing spots including an Amber Jack feeding “frenzy” that provided three large fish. We caught plenty of grunts and snapper along with grouper and a bonita. We saw four sandbar sharks and a pod of dolphins. Could not ask for s better day of fishing Thanks Captain Scott!!
