Why We’re Thankful for Tarpon Fishing

Table of Contents

Thanksgiving is almost here, and it’s the perfect time to give your thanks for the great things in life, like tarpon fishing.

It has been a crazy year, and 2016 has flown by. Whether you want to believe it or not, the holidays are right around the corner, and with Thanksgiving just a couple of weeks away, we think that it’s the perfect time to express a couple of the many reasons why we are thankful for tarpon fishing in Clearwater:

#1. Tarpon are huge.

No one would post a picture of themselves proudly holding up a tiny, four-inch fish on Facebook or frame it for the mantel. You save your biggest, most impressive catches for that privilege, and when you want your next enviable catch, tarpon fishing is for you. Tarpon can get up to 280 pounds and grow up to eight feet long, and nothing will look more impressive on your mantel than a picture of you holding a tarpon.

#2. Tarpon don’t make it easy.

If you are looking for a little challenge in your fishing adventure, then you can’t miss out on tarpon fishing. Tarpon require a whole new level of skill and technique, and they are known for putting up a tough fight when you reel them in. When you want to catch a tarpon, you really have to work for it.

Although we’ve only had time to go over a couple of reasons to be thankful for tarpon fishing, trust us when we say that this is one fishing experience that can’t be missed. Experience for yourself why we are so thankful for tarpon fishing when you sign up for our tarpon fishing charter in Clearwater!

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.

We booked a four-hour out of St. Pete Marina. One of our best trips ever. Capt. Scott was very knowledgeable and took us to several great spots. Caught fish, had fun, great value, what more could you ask? We will be back.

I had a wonderful experience with Captain Johnny and Cooper! They were polite, kind, professional, and experts. Don’t let their age full you, they are extremely skilled! I enjoyed my experience, and highly recommend them! Planning my trip for next month with them!

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!
