Destin Florida Tarpon Fishing
Throughout my adult life, the ones who know me for some time will tell you anytime I wanted to do something, I was always 100% in. My drive and passion means I can’t quit until I achieve whatever I set out to do. My biggest, almost crazy obsession with anything that swims started when I was young and I am constantly chasing my next biggest catch. Most recently, I’ve targeted an elusive fish – one with a beautiful coat of silver, a perfectly put together blend of elegance, grace, power, and strength. Can you guess? I’m talking about the silver king.. The Tarpon.
I finally made the catch of all catches this past summer and it didn’t disappoint. Tarpon is hard to hook; they fight hard and have crazy acrobatics. More often than not you don’t catch that fish, even after you hook it and fight it. You only have about a 37% chance of actually getting that fish to the boat and putting your hands on it, and that’s one of the many reasons why its a prize catch.
For me, catching something this big, monster-ish, almost dinosaur-ish fish, something happens to me. When I see that silver tip break the surface, my heart stops in anticipation, my brain frozen in awe – and this is how I know I have become addicted to this fish.
Destin Florida Tarpon Fishing is best from mid May to early August when schools of these fish are found migrating South through the Gulf of Mexico to spawn. Get yourself locked in with an angler that has Tarpon experience for your best chance to hook one up. Cost on Tarpon trips will vary, inquire for details.
