Trapon 6 23 14
The Tarpon along the beaches are a little funky. But that is because they are going from a great bite to a good bite all along the length of S.W. Florida. The tarpon are moving North
and then coming back south. The bite is Crabs early until 9:am then switches back & forth between
Pin fish & Thread fins. DOA bait busters are the Tarpon candy right now, better than bait or anything
thing else along the beaches, take a couple different colors with you.
including a pink one, Purple, White & green and a root beer. One throw one color and your
fishin partner another color. straight retrieve no real jerking or jiggin required.
The middle of the Harbor 20 foot hole there is a lot of Tarpon but they are not showing
them selves. from the hole to the west wall sand bar, if you are using will have to weed through
lots of Sharks and big cats, but you will if you are willing to stick it out, get your Tarpon
a hole bunch of Small Tarpon in Edgewater lake, East spring lake, and the holes in the PGI
rim canal. this is Flying fishin heaven. Yes you can really catch a Tarpon here with a fly.
If you insist on using a Tarpon Fly, take your scissors and cut off 3/4 of it so it will be usable
keep just enough of the fly so you can still see each of the colors, get rid of the rest of it &
now it will work, strip pause , strip pause, sound like a bar I used to go to, but it is the pause
and the sinking, when you strip lift the tip of the rod, tiny split shot will help so the fly will
sink then shot towards the surface.
