Boca Grande is the Tarpon capital of the World for a reason: Giant Tarpon!! and lots of them!!. With pods of Tarpon stacked 40ft thick in the pass and thousands cruising the nearby beaches, there is no question why people travel from around the world to try their hand at the True Silver King. One of the strongest fish in the ocean, Tarpon put up a fight that is guaranteed to test your strength and stamina while putting on aerial assault that would make the Blue Angels jealous. Averaging 130lbs with small fish weighing 100lbs and fish over 200 pounds caught regularly, the Tarpon of Boca Grande are absolute Beasts!!
Every year these Giants migrate to Boca Grande to feed on the crabs and bait fish that flush out of Charlotte Harbor creating an all you can eat buffet. The feeding frenzy often attracts monster bull sharks and Hammerheads cranking things up a notch. The fishing is on fire morning, noon, and night with non-stop action. Fishing within 100yds off the beach and less than five minutes from the dock, this is a fishery that enables everyone, regardless of their sea legs, to take part and catch their fish of a lifetime!! There is no where else in the world where you can catch 100-250lb fish as your family watches you from the beach in the shadow of world famous Boca Grande Lighthouse.

Iron Man: (Strongly Recommended)
Starting around 6:00am we typically fish till around noon with a quick run to a local marina restaurant to have lunch and cool off after pulling on Tarpon all morning. Once re-energized we'll head back out to fish the Afternoon/Sunset bite from roughly 2-7. This trip is by far the most enjoyable with a nice break in the middle of the day to re-energize before going back into battle with the Tarpon of Boca Grande. Fishing both the morning and evening tides, anglers have the opportunity to experience the ABSOLUTE BEST OF BOCA GRANDE!! The morning is typically packed with non stop action and intensity while the evening is very relaxing casting spinning rods to pods of tarpon as they cruise along the beach while the sun sets over the gulf. It is a great way to end an action packed day without ever feeling pressed for time. Depending on the Moon phase, the later half of this trip often takes place during the World Famous Boca Grande Hill Tide.
**This trip is essentially a Silver King and Hill Tide trip combined saving you $400.
