Tarpon Fishing Charter Report – St Pete Beach and Tampa Bay

by Capt. Kevin Walton on May 13, 2011

Tarpon have arrived and my clients couldn’t be happier and neither can I . It never gets old seeing a six foot long, 100lb fish doing cart wheels across Tampa Bay. Whether we bring them to the boat or not it’s always a thrill.

The hottest Tarpon fishing action has been at the Sunshine Skyway Bridge in lower Tampa Bay. My charters have had to get up a little earlier than normal because it can get a little crowded out there, but its been worth it. Using Live and cut thread fin hearing has been the best bait, but we have got a few tarpon on pinfish too. This coming week is the full moon and the outgoing tides are going to great for Tarpon fishing the Skyway.

There have also been a some fish off of St Pete Beach and Treasure Island. The schools are few and far between, but that will change after this full moon and Tarpon will be all over our beaches. June is the best month for Tarpon fishing charters in St Pete Beach.

If a Tarpon is on your bucket list, give me a call today 727-638-0975, Capt Kevin Walton
