There is a reason that tarpon has become synonymous with “the silver king of all sports-fish”  – they are into the game as much as you are.  Their high acrobatic jumps and tail-walking antics can mock you…while making you appreciate their true splendors.  I have yet to hook a tarpon without the feeling that it was a privileged experience and look forward to sharing this thrill with you. 

Tarpon "The Silver King"

The near shore waters of Naples are prime spots to hunt Tarpon as they make their annul migrations north in the spring, and south in the fall. Using live green back herring, or a D.O.A. bait buster are two sure ways to target the King. These fish are generally the mature adults on their way to feeding grounds to fatten up for the annual spawn.

Their off spring use the enriched back waters of Naples and her surrounding waters as their nursery. So whether it's a 10 pound baby or a 200 pound monster, call me and find out which one wants to bite !


"Pete, Outstanding work, very much enjoyed meeting you and we look to arrange many more outings with you in the future. In fact, our plan is to schedule next year’s trip around the September 2011 harvest moon. Tarpon !
Certain we will call on you sooner than that, several interesting housing options identified this trip and thanks for all that you did to make this a very memorable vacation.
Warmest Regards, herb"
