There are many things in life that should make it onto your bucket list. Key Largo Tarpon fishing should definitely be one of them. It’s not about whether you’ll find a Tarpon or not out here, but whether you'll have what it takes to reel it in.

What to Expect  

You won’t need a long trip to target Tarpon. Anywhere from 4–8 hours will give you enough time to get to the fishing grounds and start fishing for Tarpon.

Most charters will run bay boats, flats boats, or skiffs into the flats and backcountry to target Tarpon. These are smaller boats, so group sizes are usually a maximum of four people. Most boats will have an elevated platform for sight fishing.

If you really want to test your skills, try fly fishing for Tarpon. Also kown as the Silver King, Tarpon will break the line in over 60% of hook ups, so landing one on the boat really gives you bragging rights. All Tarpon should be released after you’ve taken your photo.

A great trip to go on is one that mixes backcountry fishing with inshore fishing. Trips that start in the afternoon give you the chance to fish for Tarpon in the evenings when they're most active.

How to Prepare

Your license will be included in the price of the trip. You’ll probably need to bring along your own food and drink, but be aware of the limited space on board. Remember to leave any beverages in glass bottles at home.

For avid fly fishermen, you’ll be using up to a 12 wt rod in windy conditions – be prepared for a hard fight and you’ll have a great story to tell when you're back home.

Don’t waste a second of your vacation and book a trip with a Key Largo Tarpon fishing guide today. You’ll get to all the hottest spots quickly and be targeting the Silver King before you know it.

We enjoyed inshore fishing. We would definitely recommend it for people with kids. It is much more active than trolling.

Die beste Saison soll scheinbar im circa Dezember/Januar oder im Juli/August sein. April ist trotzdem eine gute Zeit, für Anfänger sogar ideal. Es muss ja nicht gleich ein Hai oder Tuna sein ?

Waters can be a bit choppy in April. For an amazing experience, if there is a slight possibility you may get sea sick, be sure to take something ahead of time.

Weather that day seemed to be perfect but didn’t catch allot of fish going through the mangroves. The captain even did recommend booking a 4 instead of a 2 hour trip to go further out to better chances of catching more fish.

Skip the bigger charters who aren't concerned with catching fish. Find the locals that have smaller more personalized trips and can get you on fish.
