Tarpon, one of the most challenging gamefish in the world, thrive in the inviting, easily-accessed turquoise Gulf waters around Boca Grande FL.

Tarpon fight the fisherman's hook relentlessly, leaping majestically from the water and a tarpon catch is an exhilerating and memorable event. On average tarpon weigh 60 lbs (tarpon can weigh over 200 lbs and measure over 6 ft.). Crabs are by far the best bait for tarpon.

Every year the Boca Grande Fishing Guides Association hold their annual Invitational Tarpon Tournament (held this year May 21 and 22, 2009) and fishermen from all over the world enter. The Boca Grande tarpon fishing competition is unequalled, winners in the tournament typically reel in tarpon close to 200 lbs. Many boaters, though, just come to watch the Boca Grande Invitational Tarpon Tournament action. They make a boating day of it out on the Gulf waters of Boca Grande Bayou and Charlotte Harbor.

Aside from the world famous Boca Grande tarpon fishing, there is a long list of other exceptional Gulf fishing, including: Shark (Hammerhead Shark), Grouper, Snapper, Snook, Trout, and Redfish to name a few. And for the record, a lot of anglers will tell you that the waters of the Lemon Bay intracoastal and the inlets and bays around the entire Cape Haze FL area are the most incredible Florida fishing waters you can experience, bar none.
