Our 2nd Tarpon Seaon in Full Swing!

September 23, 2015 by Jason Sullivan

Trip Info


We are in full swing in what I like to call our second tarpon season. These fish are ranging from 60lb - over 100lb and are all over the gulf edges of the Everglades. They are gorging on schools of baits that are being pushed south. This is happens every year and lasts till we start to get our cold fronts about the end of October - early November. This week we got them on plugs and flies.  They are typically pretty aggressive since a lot of the times when you find them, they are already working a school of bait. 

The baby tarpon continue to be plentiful almost everywhere in the Glades.  They are also super aggressive and this week we had some really awesome bites from them.  It is definitely one of the coolest things to see!
