Big Pine Key Fishing Reports

Late Season Tarpon Fishing

June 20, 2015 by Robert Horachek

Trip Info


  June is that time of year when the Tarpon migration starts moving on but there are still Tarpon still around. Best times to fish tarpon are in the mornings this time of year. On my last charter, we landed 4 Tarpon, hooked 2 more, landed a nice 10lb snook, a 20” gag grouper, and a Big Jack Crevelle which turned out to be a solid 3/4 day trip out on the water. Along with that, we had a good shot at 2 decent size permit crusing down on the edge of the flat. Of coarse those two permit were spooky and the rest was history.
