2016 Tarpon Season

Tarpon season is upon us once again.  This has been an odd year as far as weather is concerned; it has been quite breezy.  Hopefully we will settle into our normal pattern of easterly winds in the morning.  West winds make it difficult to see tarpon and hard to stay on them once they are spotted.  The moon is full on Saturday, May 21 and again on Monday June 20.  Generally speaking, the days before the moon can be spectacular and those behind the moon can be tough.  Last year it was very good early then tapered off a bit.  Every year is different, so we will see what 2016 brings us!  Capt Jim
