With the water crystal clear, the Tarpon in St Pete Beach are thick in the passes. We’ve noticed them swimming in large spread-out schools that stretch up to a mile long! All we have to do is drift right in the middle. It’s a great sight, with fish swimming all around. Where you cast is up to you! That’s the challenge. You cast off to the port side, and maybe you’ll see the fish shoot past the other side. Don’t sweat it though, head out with us and we guarantee you’ll get a catch.
