Our Fort Myers tarpon fishing charters are dedicated to only fishing for the silver king! Captain’s favorite time of year. If you can make it here from March to July, it’s as world-class as world-class tarpon fishing gets. This charter should be on every serious angler’s bucket list These tarpon do amazing, acrobatic flips and jumps and show off their beautiful silver scales as they relentlessly try to shake your hooks throughout the fight – which makes catching a tarpon a very difficult and rewarding task. Tarpon near Fort Myers can be over 200 pounds and we’re commonly hooking up with 5+ fish per trip. Tarpon fishing at night in Southwest Florida is best during tarpon season from March – August, but it’s also a great year-round bite where you can hook tarpon almost any day of the year! At night the tarpon can be extremely active and feed really well. Floating big live baits can generate incredible surface strikes right behind the boat. We also like to target tarpon with artificial presentations & dead baiting the bottom. Our tarpon fishing charters start out of Sanibel/Fort Myers Beach area with convenient waterfront pickups also available. We can also fish out of Boca Grande. Captain Jack has poured 15 years of passion into these waters and loves putting his clients on fish! It’s hard to find someone with a better handle on the Fort Myers area tarpon migrations and feeding patterns than Captain Jack. Read More
