TARPON - (MEGALOPS ATLANTICUS)
BETTER KNOWN AS (BUTTKICKUS FISHUS)
The Silver King is truly the most sought after game fish in the Florida Keys. Their spectacular leaps, strong runs and incredible endurance will test your angling skills. Tarpon are found in Keys waters year round, but the main migration show up around the bridges and inshore channels in early MARCH to JUNE. The average Tarpon is over 100 pounds but in the past years, we've caught 7ft. fish weighing over 200lbs. on 20 pound spinner gear. The time fighting a Tarpon will range from 30 minutes to over 2 hours. This is why I call them (Buttkickus Fishus).
Tarpon fishing is the best chance for a novice angler to catch a large fish. In the past, numerous Junior Anglers have caught Tarpon over 100lbs. with Capt. Lee. Live bait trips in the afternoon offer anglers the best chance to do battle with Large Silver Kings and enjoy a fabulous Florida Keys Sunset.
