After many years of tarpon fishing, in 2010 I decided to keep track of how many tarpon my clients jump during tarpon season from April - July in Boca Grande. I thought this would be a great way to show potential clients just how good the tarpon fishing is in Boca Grande.
During the 2010 tarpon fishing season my clients jumped 447 tarpon. These fish ranged 70 pounds to about 215 pounds.
During the 2011 tarpon fishing season my clients jumped a whopping 513 tarpon. With the largest fish over 225 pounds.
During the 2012 tarpon fishing season my clients jumped 409 tarpon. The 2012 tarpon fishing season there was a small decline in the fishing do to weather conditions.
During the 2013 tarpon fishing season my clients jumped an Incredible 647 tarpon. By far our best season ever!
During the 2014 tarpon fishing season my clients jumped an Awesome 633 tarpon. An exceptional season!

Tampa, Clearwater, and Boca Grande areas of Florida are some of the best areas in the world to catch tarpon. Tarpon are one of the largest game fish that roam the shallow flats. The fish (also known as the "silverking") are one of the most powerful fish, pound for pound, in the world.
Not only are they powerful, they make spectacular jumps. On just about every hook-up there will be a display of acrobatical jumps.There is nothing like it when bright silver "SILVERKING" weighing anywhere from 100 to 200 pounds clears the water by six feet.
We catch these mighty silverkings in several different areas along the West Coast. The large tarpon show up in the mouth of Tampa Bay in March. These fish move throughout Tampa Bay all summer long, leaving sometime in October. On our charters, we catch these fish several different ways. These techniques include sight fishing with artificial lures to live bait fishing with threadfins and blue crabs.
For anglers trying to beat Florida's hot summer days, our night tarpon fishing charters around local bridges is a great alternative while fighting your trophy silverking. Action Fishing Adventures
During cooler months, juvenile tarpon can be caught in local rivers and residential canals. These fish range from 10 to 40 pounds. When using 8 to 10 pound test tackle these fish are real tackle busters.

Tarpon are known for their initial jumps and powerful runs. Even with modern gear tarpon are strong adversaries and are not easily taken. They are legendary for their ability to throw hooks because of their bony mouths make hook setting difficult. Hooking a tarpon is like trying to penetrate steel. Combine this with violent head thrashing jumps some as high as 10 feet. It becomes very clear why tarpon are able to not only throw hooks but break lines and leaders. A technique which is a lean toward the tarpon when it is ready to break surface known as "a bow to the king" creates a slack in the line to help keep the tarpon from throwing the hook. In spite of the many challenging traits tarpon have catching a world class tarpon still remains a highlight of many anglers.
