Tarpon Fishing Punta Gorda
Punta Gorda offers some of the best access to the tarpon fishing grounds in Charlotte Harbor. A beautiful Riverfront community that over looks the sunsets coming across backs of tarpon as they roll in the early or late afternoons. With miles of direct connected canals that host the juvenile tarpon and home to a sizeable year round tarpon population, makes Punta a most stay tarpon destination.
The name, Punta Gorda, comes from the Spanish, meaning Fat Point. This historic small town is a hidden treasure of Florida and lies as a “Fat Point”, sticking out into Charlotte Harbor – one of the US’s largest natural harbors.
Centrally located between Sarasota to our North and Fort Myers to our South, Punta Gorda is a delightful location, within a comfortable driving distance from Tampa, Orlando and Miami. Tarpon Anglers come from all around Florida for the Punta Gorda Fishing.
