Sanibel Tarpon Fishing

I'm thankful for a good week Tarpon Fishing. We were able to land 4 fish in the last 6 days, nice sharks filled in the wait for a bite. The Tarpon have been eating pass crabs in the afternoons, cut bait has worked in the mornings. The month of May is all booked!, thanks for filling it up.

There are many good days in June!, the week of June 7th thru the 13th should be great for Tarpon.

Call me to book any of these days. 239-410-7194

Another side story about last Sat, May 15th....I was in Pine Island Sound at 11 AM catching bait for an afternoon trip with The Archey family. The bait slowed down, couldn't catch enough pin fish. As the time to pick up approached I began to motor towards a shoal. In the distance I think I see 2 dolphins chasing bait. As i am driving closer it becomes clear that the 2 fins are on one , BIG, Hammerhead shark. The shark is in 6-8 ft of water chasing a free swimming Tarpon!. It's 10-12 feet long!, the dorsal is 3 ft tall out of the water, the tail is almost as tall.

You can't imaging the power and beauty of the predator as it chased down and killed the Tarpon. It was so mesmerizing that I could'nt find my camera until it was over.

There's always something to see, do, enjoy, around Sanibel Island Fishing.

Tarpon are starting to show up in Pine Island sound

May 7th, its a start!. Tarpon are starting to show up in Pine Island sound. I haven't seen a big group of fish yet, but it should happen any day. I have been fishing with live bait or cut ladyfish . It is either the most relaxing fishing or the most exciting!. Yesterday we got one hookup and landed the fish after a good 1 hour battle with 7 or 8 jumps. Congratulations Ingrid!.
