Tarpon time.

Trip Summary

We are excited about Tarpon season here in South Fl. As the weather becomes more humid, and we work each day to avoid rain showers, we all know it's Tarpon time. Although a "dry" summer season has unfolded so far, we've found a reasonable amount of good fish. On a recent trip, we took to the Everglades back country in search of the mighty "silver king" and found some in the 10-50 lb class on our first stop. We threw some live baits and soft plastics to them, and were surprised with how they took more to the artificials. In just a few moments we "jumped" four, and brought one "to the hand" after a solid fight! In typical tarpon fashion we got many acrobatic leaps, solid runs and lighting quick direction changes before she came to the hand. We have some dates left in late July, come aboard today to take advantage of this summer pattern today. Book A-Squared Charters today.

Greetings A2 fans. With a welcomed chill in the air, our best time of the year approaches! But the bite has already stepped up.. Recently we have welcomed aboard Redfish, Tripletail, and abundant Snook aboard! Such was the case on a recent trip with return customer William. On day one of a two day adventure, William and I set out from the world famous Caribbean Club in Key Largo. On this day, we set our sight on Snapper, Snook and maybe some Redfish! Our morning went off GREAT as planned, and within 15 minutes into our first stop, Williams boated his limit of Gray Snapper, keeping none, but simply enjoyed the fierce fight of these feisty dudes!! Having filled his Snapper urge, we ventured from Key Largo waters and into the Flamingo Everglades. At our second stop, we picked up quite the mixed bag; Shepshead, Snapper, Snook, Trout and others... As I waited for the tide to come in, we sight casted to a school of Tripletail, none of which were smaller 20 inches! In short order we boated four, released two, and brought two back for an amazing TT dinner later that evening (One was 12 lbs and the other 8). On our way back, and on a hunch I stopped at a spot that hadn't been good since last season. Well, on this day, and although it took a while to materialize, William and I boated a 1/2 dozen, ALL upper slot Redfish. Keeping none. Day 2 two brought us more Snook that we could count. No tripletail. And another great showing by our friends the Redfish. Book with us today! Before our open slots close. Ps. As always we offer military and first responder discounts. Also, booking multiple days will get you a nice discount as well. See y'all on the water.
