There is no “official” tarpon season. But, Capt. Dave runs tarpon fishing charter in Boca Grande for the months of May and June each year.
The Tampa Bay, Charlotte Harbor, and Boca Grande Areas depending on time of year and what you want to target.
Fishing licenses, bait, use of tackle, ice in the cooler, gas in the boat, cleaned and bagged fish (when in season and of legal size).
Hats, sunglasses, sunscreen, light windbreaker (for morning runs), camera, and a happy disposition.
Redfish, snook, trout, sheephead, Spanish mackerel, jack crevelle, sharks… etc. All depends on the time of year.
Yes. Capt. Dave makes his full time living on the water.
