Hop on board with Captain Scott for an exciting day of chasing "Silver Kings" in the stunning Florida inshores! Boca Grande is a fantastic spot to catch some of the sought-after inshore fish that Florida is known for, including elusive Tarpon! The opportunity to Tarpon fish in Florida is an awesome experience that is on most anglers' bucket lists. Boca Grande Tarpon are considered one of the greatest saltwater game fish. They are prized not only because of the great size but also because of the fight they put up and their spectacular leaping ability. This huge and majestic fish can weigh up to 200+ pounds and jump upwards of 8 feet out of the water. A typical tarpon season runs from about April to October but the best time in the Boca Grande area is May-July. On this 8-hour trip, Captain Scott will take you on a short trip to the inshore flats around Boca Grande Pass to target some hard-fighting Tarpon. You'll be drift fishing with light or heavy tackle and choosing from a selection of live bait or artificial lures.
