Tarpon Fishing In Tampa Bay

By April 13, 2011No Comments

Well April is here and good weather is at its peak. Water temperature is in the upper 70s and fishing is as good as it gets. Tarpon fishing is just around the corner and we are already seeing a few fish showing up on the flats and I look for the big schools of migration fish to start showing there faces along the beaches and bridges of Tampa Bay. We will also start to see these fish invading our passes in search of  the pass crabs which flow with the strong tides the co-inside with the weeks around the new and full moons. Tarpon a fish that requires both skill and patience but the fight that they will produce is well worth it. Most of our migration fish should start to show up at the end of April and hang around until the end of June. We also have resident fish which live here year round. I like to target these fish inside Tampa Bay from July until October. Fishing in Tampa is great especially for Tarpon and now is the time to book your tarpon trip. 813-727-9890
