Fort Myers Tarpon fishing charters started off right this year. March 1st marked the first tarpon landed on my charters. I have high hopes for this tarpon season. Long as the wind doesn’t blow us out I think it will be a really spectacular season. After 2 days of fishing we are 8-9.
With a very mild winter and water temps in the upper 70s we are starting to see Tarpon very early this year. Which means they will be here from now till early July more than likely. There is a bunch of food for the Tarpon off the Fort Myers beaches and Sanibel beaches at the moment. These hungry fish will stay and chew as long as the bait is there.
