|Florida Keys Tarpon Fishing
tarpon is non-edible and a very athletic and strong fish so this type of fishing will truly wear an
angler out! You can find this species throughout the Florida Keys and are targeted more in the
spring. Baby tarpon may be found in residential canals that surround mangrove islands. In
summer, tarpon range from babies of 5 to 25 pounds up to an average size of 30 to 60
pounds. For the most part, these tarpon live in the Keys and don't roam far.
But there are also migrating tarpon that come to the warm waters of the Keys in the spring.
They come in a hurry and they are big! It is a common site to see fish over 100 lbs. swimming
and rolling right around your boat
At times, Florida Bay has an enormous population of medium to large fish - a population that
is readily accessible by small craft. Also, any of the 42 bridges in the Keys that allow
movement of a substantial amount of water between the bay and the ocean also harbor these
fish. Channel Two Bridge and Channel Five Bridge, both just south of Islamorada, are
notorious tarpon spots.
Anglers should look for calm conditions early and late in the day; such conditions keep fish
"rolling" on the surface of the water and gulping air - a delight to the eye and the ear.
