Seasonally Speaking

Traditionally our tarpon season is most consistent in the spring. The migration begins in late april and carries on through the month of July. These fish are commonly known as "migrant tarpon" and show up here in Key West by the thousands, hungry from their long trek. Dates for these charters to fish the migrant tarpon fill up fast sometimes a year in advance.
