Starting in April as the tarpon begin flooding into the area. The back bays of Fort Myers and Ft. Myers Beach will play host to thousands of tarpon, this is when Capt Andy Go Fish Charters and Guide Service begins targeting tarpon on a daily basis.
These tarpon will establish a pattern of movement from area to area. To insure our fishing charters are productive we start targeting tarpon as soon as they show. Setting up in various locations and chumming and live baiting the area. These tarpon charters in the early part of the season are spinning rod and sight casting trips and can be mixed up with a flats and backcountry trip for snook red fish and other species. As May approaches and the water temps get optimal these giant tarpon move North into Boca Grande Pass. This is where all the fast paced action takes place as veteran tarpon guides and anglers converge on the pass for the next two months. This tarpon fishing fleet will operate 24 hours a day in a truly phenomenal display of what is locally known as the Boca Grande Dance. Go Fish Charters and Guide service and Capt Andy Boyette will shift in to high gear and fish from daylight till dark.
With the long days it affords a two fishing charter a day schedule. Each charter is 6 hours long with a morning tarpon fishing charter beginning at 6am and lasting till noon. This charter consist mostly of jig fishing in the pass. After a lunch break Capt Andy will pickup another fishing charter party for the afternoon 1pm-7pm returning to Boca Grande Pass for a time, to jig fish, but as this trip progresses the tarpon will start to break up into smaller groups and move slightly off shore to the Beach, the rest of the trip will be sight casting and free lining live bait. Both the morning and the afternoon fishing charters are equally productive. Go Fish Charters and Guide Service and Capt. Andy Boyette have the experience to produce consistently on either of these tarpon fishing charters. So if you want to fish early and spend the afternoon on a Fort Myers golf course, sightseeing on Ft Myers Beach Florida’s beautiful coast or want to check out the local night time scene in downtown Fort Myers; and sleep-in and catch the afternoon fishing charter I can accommodate you. Tarpon Fishing Charters are available for up to four anglers or group arrangements can be made. Tarpon Fishing Fort Myers, Ft. Myers Beach, Boca Grande Pass, Charlotte Harbor, and along the beaches, live bait, jig fishing, or fly fishing.
