The 2018 Tarpon Fishing Charter season is about to kick off with YACHTFISH Fishing Charters in beautiful Saint Petersburg. Tarpon, also known as the “Silver King”, are some of my favorite species to target here in Tampa Bay. This spectacular gamefish range in size from 20-200 pounds and provide anglers with a battle of a lifetime. Many people from around the world come to St Petersburg during the summer months to target Tarpon here in Tampa Bay. Tarpon will begin their spawn in early May here in Saint Petersburg and go through the end of September. #tarponfishing #tarpon #tarponfishingcharter #stpetefishingcharters #YACHTFISH

How to Catch Tarpon on your Tarpon Fishing Charter

These fish can be found in many places including the local beaches, bridges, passes and artificial reefs in Tampa Bay. Tarpon are a schooling fish so often found in large numbers migrating north along the beaches in the summer months. Some of my favorite baits to catch these monsters are Pinfish, Scaled Sardines, Threadfin Hearing and Crabs. They can also be caught using dead bait soaked on the bottom such as Shad, Ladyfish and Mullet. YACHTFISH Fishing Charters out of St Pete will begin running Tarpon Fishing Charters the beginning of May and run through late September. The best time to target Tarpon is normally in the early morning hours sight fishing along the beaches or in the late afternoon when the sun is setting. Tarpon are a catch and release fish only and are of no edible value so need to be released unharmed to be caught another day.

Great day on the water with Yachtfish. Captain Pat and Mate Hunter were very knowledgeable and friendly. They went out of their way to make it a great experience for everyone from the kids to the grandparents. Lots of action all day and a full fish box, can’t ask for more.

Captain Johnny and Scott were great!! I knew going in the tides were not in favor of fishing, but they both busted their tails to put us on fish and bring home a meal. Will be rebooking with them for sure!
