What are Boca Grande Tarpon Charters known for?
Boca Grande is know as the tarpon capital of the world! Every year thousands of tarpon make their annual migration up the coast of Florida as the waters warm in the Gulf of Mexico. They stop in Boca Grande Pass and Charlotte Harbor for 3 months for their annual spawning.
This creates a very unique and plentiful tarpon fishery for those 3 months on our Boca Grande fishing charters. Thousands of fish can be seen daily rolling in various parts of the harbor in pods that number in the thousands. These tarpon can be targeted with great confidence in the pass, in the harbor & on the beaches. Come join us on a Boca Grande tarpon fishing trip for the fishing adventure of a lifetime!
Bait & Tackle
Medium & heavy spinning & conventional tackle with live bait only.
Boca Grande fishing charters require tackle that not only helps you hook the fish but also helps you to successfully land your catch. Fin-Nor reels matched with custom rods are up to the task and are the best in the industry. They are spooled with Power Pro braid & Seaguar flourocarbon leader to make the the ultimate tarpon rigs.
