Tarpon Fishing in Key Largo

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.

What People Are Saying About Tarpon Fishing in Key Largo

"Half Day Trip with Captain Armondo"

David W. Dunbar fished with A-Squared Charters on September 8, 2017

Armondo was fantastic. He is extremely knowledgeable, helpful and skilled. We missed Tarpon but saw plenty of them rolling early but didn't miss on any other species for the remainder of the day. He extended our trip for no extra charge and we caught more fish than ever expected. I would recommend AA Squared charters highly and often. We will be back!
