Why Southwest Florida is the Premiere Charter Fishing Destination
The bays, rivers, grass flats, and mangrove island mazes of Southwest Florida provide fertile estuaries for a number of Florida’s famous inshore species. These include tarpon, mangrove snapper, redfish, speckled sea trout, snook, and sheepshead.
Home to The Tarpon Fishing Capital of the World. Each spring, anglers come to the fisheries of Charlotte Harbor and Boca Grande Pass with the plan to catch a monster tarpon. This is a monster of a gamefish and southwest Florida is home to the most epic Tarpon fishing on the planet. It is also home to the largest tarpon tournaments in the state.
Tarpon tournament conservations note:
“The 2018 World’s Richest Tarpon Trust is proud to partner with Bonefish & Tarpon Trust and Captain’s for Clean Water to work together on ethics, etiquette, and education for the benefit of the Boca Grande fishery.”
