Full length version

Just under a minute of crazy 80 pound tarpon action. Caught with light tackle spinning gear using a live crab on the beach off Pine Island Sound's barrier Islands.

More Tarpon are Showing on the Beaches Daily


Conditions: May conditions are here, water temps in the mid-eighties. Watch for those afternoon thunderstorms.
Bait: threadfin herring, Green back Herring, pinfish, shrimp, crab
Species to target this week: Tarpon, Snook, Redfish, Seatrout.
Fishing Tactics: The beach is the place if the wind and swells allow. Go early and look for rolling tarpon before the wind gets going. There are big snook cruising in the troughs and on the second bars.
My Fly Fishing Tip of the Week: Anchoring up for tarpon has been more effective than stalking them with a trolling motor.
My Spin Fishing Tip of the Week: White bait and pass crabs are both getting bites from the beach tarpon. Stay back and shut off your outboard. Long casts are key.
7 day outlook: There will be some wind and showers early in the week. Things will cleat on Wednesday night. The rain and clouds should cool the backcountry water temps. More tarpon are arriving daily on the beaches and in the sounds. 

I have a few Tarpon days available in May. Contact me today for details.

Chris from Arcadia, FL and his buddy Mike from LeBelle, FL had a fun morning tarpon fishing on the beaches off Charlotte Harbor / Pine Island Sound. Flat calm conditions, only three other skiffs in sight and happy tarpon for two hours made for trip to remember for a long time. The spawning migration has started and the next 6 weeks will provide world-class fishing here in Southwest Florida.

Chris From the Razzor Ranch in Zolfo Springs and his long time friend Mike had a great day of light tackle tarpon fishing off Captiva and Sanibel Islands. Perfect conditions and only three other skiffs in sight. We fished on pods of happy tarpon for two hours. By the way, the Razzor Ranch puts on a great hog hunt, I went there a couple weeks ago with my buddy Greg Straut and had an excellent time.
