Sarasota Tarpon charters for 2017

Tarpon fishing has been steady the last couple of years, with May and June being the most reliable times to fish.  The full moon in May is early this year, on May 10.  That should result in decent numbers of fish up until the next full moon on June 9.  On and just after the moon the tarpon school up and move offshore to spawn, which means less fish on the beach.  The new moon in May is on the 25th.  Prime dates in May will be the week leading up to the 25th.  The week after that, which includes Memorial Day and the heavy boat traffic that goes along with that, might be tough.  Action should then pick up afterwards and will most likely be strong up until the full moon on Jine 9.  Book early to get the best dates!
