The silver king awaits.
The silver king awaits.
Mayo 6, 2023
Tough to put into words the satisfaction when you grab one of these prehistoric fish by the face. Allow me to explain... If you know me you know that I have a love/ hate relationship with the silver king. In particular I despise fishing the pass. Well, on Friday we fished for 6 hours in Boca Grande pass and had only 4 bites. We landed 0 fish. Yep, that's right I got skunked. Tarpon fishing can be like that sometimes but when every boat around you is hooking up and flying fish in all directions it can take a toll on your morale. Before we fishing the pass my regular client specifically said he wanted to fish the pass. I tried my best to persuade them otherwise and even reassured them I knew where they were off the beach and we wouldn't have to deal with any other boats or sharks. Well when a customer has fished with you so many times that they pay your mortgage as a captain you do whatever they want. With my ego broken down a little I got up at 4:30 on Saturday morning and decided to go to the beach by myself and get some vitamin sea. First bait in the water at 7:30 got smoked but the fish broke instantly. With tarpon fishing you literally have to make every bite count. I was crushed. About an hour or so passed and I got another perfect opportunity and was able to get tight and eventually get this beauty boatside. As luck would have it a boat was passing by and was kind enough to snap some photos and text them to me today. All the hard work, early mornings, hours and hours spent getting the right bait finally paid off and I was able to tango with the silver king. That's all I wanted. Just 1 fish for me per year is all I need. All the rest are for my customers. Trust me when I tell you that catching a tarpon solo is one of the hardest things to do but lord was it worth it. I tell people that tarpon fishing is the most frustrating yet rewarding fishing there is- there's literally nothing like it. May is filling up quick so get your tarpon trips locked in ASAP.

Cool weather may slow the bite, so you'd better have a captain who knows what they're doing.

There was a storm that had the tides unseasonably high. Made for difficult but interesting fishing.

Unfortunately grouper was closed, so that wasn't an option this round. It closed just days before our trip, not a reflection on the trip itself, just the way of things here. A cold front pushed in, limiting how far out we could go.

Freshwater fisherman should ask for advice form their captain on changing their techniques to better suit saltwater species and equipment.

To book with an experienced captain like Tim Hermus in order to give yourself the best chance of catching fish, but even with the best captains catching fish can't be guaranteed but it's always great fun to try.

If you’re a first time fisherman, the intercoastal offers a nice place to get comfortable with your gear. If you’re experienced, the gulf is just right there and easy to access. March was a good time of year to go (March 23rd for us) as it was slightly cool to start, but warm and enjoyable enough and never TOO hot.

We have fished a few places in SW Florida in the past year. Englewood is a gorgeous community without the hectic feel of Naples or Ft Myers. We had fish on all day long. Would highly recommend to anyone wanting a more laid back fishing day, where you catch a lot of fish, which is more of what my family enjoys.
