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.

Meet at the Pink Elephant & short ride to the channel. First time fishing there. Outstanding Captain, crew, boat, & equipment. High end rods & reels worked very well for fighting the large Tarpon we hooked up in the pass. We eventually got a 130 pound Tarpon to the beach and fought another one for a good time. My son’s and I had a great day. We look forward to booking another trip! Thank you Captain Lou & Son!

You will not find a better or more experienced captain at Boca Grande. We fished two days with captain Phil on the 10 hour trips. Boat was in great condition, mate (Tim) extremely helpful, and the fishing was awesome! We will fish with Captain Phil and his counter part captain Jeff again that is for sure. Thank you both for making our trip so enjoyable. Steve from Las Vegas

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 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.
