Default Indian Pass or Apalachicola Tarpon Guide Question

Anyone ever hire a guide from either of these areas? Looking to give it a try this year and would like a couple recommendations.

Thanks

I highly recommend Capt. Dave Lear.

He is a great guy and a great Tarpon Guide. Has an awesome Bayshore custom flats boat and can target 100% tarpon on fly or mix it up for reds, trout and other species.

dont know any captains off hand, but I know the fishing is great in Indian Pass. I am a guide in Destin, Fl. I work with several captains that fish Indian Pass but they are out of the water right now. Please post your fishing report after the trip I know them boys work hard at what they do.

Thanks for the input guys. I am looking to book early to get the best date available I can. Seems like the websites I looked at feature Fly Fishing for Tarpon. I do not know how to Fly Fish.

Capt. John, I looked at the website for bookmeacharter and they do not mention Tarpon anywhere. Do they target Tarpon?

I use this man for tarpon out of Indian pass and his son earlier in the year for trout and triple tail. We have always done very well.
