Tarpon Fishing Miami Is On Fire! - Fort Lauderdale Fishing Charters

Tarpon Fishing Miami Is On Fire!

May 5, 2015

We are so lucky to have some of the most amazing tarpon fishing right here in our back yard. The tarpon have been sitting at bridges and off the beaches gorging on the huge amounts of shrimp and crabs flushing out of the bay. The outgoing tides have been best and we have been getting double digit strikes in the evenings and landing several fish.


This recent full moon had the shrimp moving around quite a bit and although the tide has been incoming in the evenings, we have still been getting enough strikes to make the night.


Around Fort Lauderdale, we have been using more crabs lately near the inlet and getting our share of fish. There have been some big snook around as they are getting ready to spawn and hit the beaches. The kids love snook fishing as the fights don’t take an hour and you can keep a fish that is within the slot regulations right now, although we mostly practice catch and release.


We only have a few dates left in May for our Tarpon Special of $500 for 5 hours. Give me a call and I’ll set you up on the right tide and bite.

What An Adventure!

I never leave reviews, but we had such a good time, I wanted to share with others. Captain David and his guys are top notch, you can tell as soon as you pull up that you have booked a great trip. We went out with them in April 2015 and we were told this was one of the best months for fishing off South Florida. The captain decided to fly kites (amazing!) to dangle baits so that the fish can’t see the hooks. I have never seen this, but it was amazing to see them do it. Within a few minutes we had a first sailfish on and then another hit. A double header! We landed both fish and the day went on just like that. We were watching the baits dangle on the surface all day.  Other boats in the area were “trolling” and weren’t catching any. David said it was because the water was so clear that it was important to kite fish.  I highly recommend booking them.
