need some advice on where to look for and catch tarpon?

What tackle and what baits and not specific locations but a general area, also when is the best time to fish day or nigt, what tide and what baits?

Please help have a relative who is coming into town and really wants to catch tarpon. we do have a boat.

Thanks for all the help

Talked to a guide in Destin last night who said he doesn't bother until last week of June, first of July.

If you only have this week though, cruise the beaches and look for the pods of two or three. Maybe just singles right now though but you'll see them.

Like Eric said, large live baits. Cobia rods will catch you a small one (50 pounds+) but if you hook into one that 100+, be prepared to A) chase that pig down for a long while or B) Cut hims off and move on.

If you CAN, then go East, start in Destin but PCB is probably better.

Ty Eric ,

I am grateful to any advice, I do believe the tarpon are here but in larger numbers in the month of july. what about the juvenile fish would i be able to find some in or near residential canals etc. also is night time on a ull moon good time to fish for them in the bay?
