About Your Trip

Join Captain Jimmy for the Tarpon fishing experience of a lifetime. Tarpon are one of the top gamefish in Florida, and these "silver kings" really congregate around Holmes Beach in the spring and summer. These large, powerful fish can grow up to eight feet long and weigh over two hundred pounds, making for an extremely exciting and challenging fishing experience, whether you're a lifelong angler or still learning your knots. Tides, weather, and the phases of the moon play essential roles in Tarpon behavior, but in the right season, these kings of the inshore are always hungry, biting on both live and artificial bait. Get out there and test yourself against these prime gamefish!

Great trip yesterday afternoon. We weren’t sure what to expect with the foggy and windy conditions. But Captain Jimmy found the fish. He is extremely knowledgeable about the fishing in the area, and we learned a lot from him. It was a great way to wrap up 2021.

Caught Sheepshead, Red Snapper, Grunts, and Groupers. Saw a Manatee, a couple sea turtles, and many dolphins. Jimmy is very knowledgeable, friendly and takes care of the fishermen in the boat, baiting and taking off fish. Can’t go wrong with Jimmy.
