Default Tarpon Guide

Any charter boat captains in the Pensacola/Orange Beach/Ft Morganarea that are good at putting you on tarpon? I'd like to take my boys out and neither one has ever caught one.

Inspiration Charters - Steve Jones he fishes upper Perdido Bay and has been having pretty good luck with Tarpon in the 30 lb range on light tackle. Although he has told me there are some pretty good size ones where he fishes.

Good Luck

Default RE: Tarpon Guide

After tarpon fishing in South FL for 10 years and moving to AL about 18 months ago, Ihavecome to grips thatthe tarpon just aren't asthick this far north of the equator. I have asked quite a few people(includingfellow pff members)and taken quite a few trips to learn thisthe hard way as well. I haven't seen too manyguides thattarget tarpon but they area fewpigs out there.

I don't know if you were only looking for tarpon and school starting back is an issue,buta weekend trip a little further south might be something to look in to. Maybe alocal guide would give the same advice? Specificallyon bothcoasts of Florida,south of 29 degrees latitude seems to be whereyou can find them invery late Augustand into September (the further south, the better it gets). If you pick this option, I do have quite a few names and numbersIcan give you.

Good luck!


P.S.Let us know how you do.

We regularly target tarpon with the prime time being early to mid June through July. We are still catching them (late July) and should continue into August but the number of opportunities per day are becoming fewer. I operate out of Destin. Feel free to give me a call.
