Tag Archives: Fly Fishing for Tarpon
Late June and early July have proved themselves to be a great time to come and sight cast to monster Tarpon off the coast of Carrabelle, Apalachicola, and Alligator Point, FL. We have been experiencing high numbers of eats (bites) per day with and average of 4-7 fish caught. This continues to happen all the way into August! We have not yet experienced much rain this summer so the water off the Forgotten Coast of Florida continues to be Gin clear! Tight Lines
May is a special month hear in the Florida Panhandle the cold fronts really start to loose there momentum and the Gulf of Mexico’s northern waters really start to warm. With these warming water come the Tarpon. I’ve been seeing a few more fish every day. This afternoon I made it out on the water for the last few hours of the rising tide and was very pleased to have seen the #’s of fish I did. I counted over 30 in 2 hours which this time of year is awesome. I even saw a good number of groups of 2 to 3 fish swimming together in the direction that our migratory fish swim during June and July. A GREAT early season afternoon! Tight Lines
Salted Flats Fly Fishing has been Apalachicola Florida Tarpon Fishing for week now. The weather has been a bit tough with some heavy winds and some clouds. That’s to be expected this early in the season. The will be settling into a summer time patter here in a week or so. It’s very early to be seeing here in the Panhandle of Florida but do the warm weather the water temp is 78 degrees. Yesterday I saw several really Big Tarpon one of which weighed WELL over 200lbs. Managed to catch MY first TARPON for the year in excess of 100lbs. Great early start to season I look forward to all winter!! Tight Lines
