10000 Islands Tarpon Fishing
Resident & Migratory Tarpon
The 10,000 Islands is home to both resident and migratory Tarpon. The water here is a little darker than most places along the coast that these Tarpon visit. In this, they are less spooked and a bit easier to catch. For artificial and fly tackle fisherman, this is one of the top places to fish for Tarpon in the state.
The Ten Thousand Islands offers a vast assortment of flats, mangrove mazes, creeks, and rivers. For resident Tarpon, this is their private oasis that is full of food sources, temperate waters, and low fishing pressure. For migratory Tarpon, this area is along their historical path from around the Florida Keys up along southwest Florida’s coast. These migratory Tarpon are generally the big variety that most Tarpon anglers are seeking. Fish are caught all year, with the peak season from March to July for the migratory variety, during a receding tide.
