May is here and so are the Tarpon...Lots of big fish in Boca Grande Pass and fish starting to show on the beach. Jumped two poons May 4th in the backcountry and then started to fish the beach May 6th and connected with an 80 lb tarpon on fly.... Great fight, she jumped 7 times and finally landed her.David Pustejovsky fought her for 45 minutes and did everything right, putting plenty of pressure on her throughout the fight. She was released, and happily swam away. Video is on my facebook page Boca on the Fly, capt. Al White.
Snook aren't getting much attention but we did mange to slide into the backcountry for 15minutes and he connected with two....
Trout are abundant on grass flats with good topwater action to be had on fly and plug...Fish to 24inches are common right now.
We are booked pretty solid for Tarpon Season but have a few days open in June....Don't forget about July....yes it is hot but so are the fish....no pressure and ready to eat! Not as many fish, but the ones you see will chew!
Tight lines and good luck,
