Preparing for Tarpon

About every three years I slip down to southwest Florida and attempt to tangle with some tarpon. I’m heading down over Memorial Day weekend and fishing out of Sanibel and Marco Island. Me and my partner will be using two different guides. We’ll start out with one day north of Sanibel with a new guide. We’ll target tarpon in the morning and then perhaps change to snook or possibly reds later in the morning.

On Marco, we’ll be using a guide I know quite well. He is Andrew Bostick, the best guide I’ve ever had, period. If anyone can put us on some big moo moo’s in the Ten Thousand Island area, he can. We may also revert to some other types of fish if the situation allows.

We will also have the opportunity to beach/wade fish around Tigertail beach on Marco Island. I’ve heard there can be some awfully nice big snook, reds, and even big tarpon in the area this time of year.

I’m going to use this blog to chronicle our trip. Can’t wait.
