Tarpon Fishing In Boca Grande

Boca Grande has been known as the Tarpon Capital of the World and anglers come to our area from across the US just to catch the “Silver King”. A tarpon is highly sought after due to its impressive size and ability to fight for a long period of time. It can weigh up to 250 lbs. and measure 4 – 8 ft in length. Reeling in a tarpon is an exhilarating experience because they leap into the air and thrash around to fight a catch. It is an impressive sight to watch and beyond your wildest dreams actually reeling in this most prized battler. That is why we have anglers returning every year to land this treasured game fish.
