Boca Grande Tarpon are considered one of the greatest saltwater game fish. They are prized not only because of the great size but also because of the fight they put up and their spectacular leaping ability.

During the months of May and June we experience a "Hill Tide" here in Boca Grande Pass. This is caused on our new and full moon phases. This causes a large amount of water in charlotte harbor to flush out millions of crabs on the surface of Boca Grande Pass in a matter of a few hours causing a feeding frenzy amongst the tarpon. Our live wells will be loaded with crabs ready to cast at the hungry tarpon. On these select tides it in not uncommon to hook several fish in a matter of hours.
Since tarpon are a migratory fish, they cannot be caught consistently year round.
