Bahia Honda Tarpon Fishing Report 5/21/13

Tarpon Charter Fishing Report 5/21/13: The past week has been one of the best Tarpopn fishing weeks of the 2013 season. The Tarpon are here in huge numbers and we have been catching multiple Tarpon on every trip out. Captain Pete Rapps, Captain Kevin Grubb, Capt Brandon, and Capt Nate have been out every day on morning, afternoon, and evening trips creating memories for dozens of first time Tarpon anglers, along with many experienced Tarpon anglers. A new all time record number of Tarpon hits on one Captain Rapps Bahia Honda Tarpon Charter was broken this week when 26 Tarpon ate our baits in one 4 hour day time trip. Although that is WAY out of the norm, this week's average has been 10 hits/jumps, 6 fights, and 3 landed. Been trying to get your first Tarpon? Well get in on the action and call Captain Rapps to book your charter before someone else snags you preferred dates. We are a close drive from Key West, Islamorada, Marathon, and other areas of the Florida Keys.

Chokoloskee & Everglades City Fishing Report 5/3/13

5/3/13 Spring time heat and sunny days has warmed up the water temperatures here in the near coastal waters and river areas of the 10000 Islands of the Everglades National Park and are now ranging between 78 and 83 degrees in the back country areas. Fishing for Redfish and Trout has been productive using DOA soft plastics on 3/8oz red and chartreuse jig heads. We have been working them over 4'-5' outside flats on the incoming tides with great results on Trout, and the Reds have been hitting the same DOA jigs and also shrimp under popping corks around oyster bars and mangrove shorelines. See photos below of Captain Kurt's crew's fantastic catches here in Chokoloskee and Everglades City this past week.  It warm and mild out which is what makes May a fantastic time of year for fishing in the Ten Thousand Islands of the Everglades National Park out of Everglades City & Chokoloskee Florida.

Bahia Honda Tarpon Fishing Report 5/3/13

Tarpon Report 5/3/12: The last week of the Full moon here at the Bahia Honda has been quite exciting! The night trips with the moon bright in the sky have produced some of the most incredible Tarpon fishing of the year. Our day time catches have been quite good with a lot of 6-10 Tarpon hookups per trip, landing a good amount of them. Some notable catches were 14 year old Jack's first ever Tarpon. He hooked into and fought a few before landing his first. After a quick photo, a DNA sample, and a full revive, the fish was released unharmed to swim another day. His Dad Matt also landed his first ever Tarpon after trying to get one for years. Debi, Dave, and Dave also got their first ever Tarpons..... and the list of first timers grows. Now is the time! Prime Tarpon fishing season is here and will be peaking out over the next 8 weeks. Been trying to get your first Tarpon? Well get in on the action and call Captain Rapps to book your charter before someone else snags you preferred dates. We are a close drive from Key West, Islamorada, Marathon, and other areas of the Florida Keys.

Tarpon Report 4/25/13: The Tarpon are here at the Bahia Honda! This past week has been absolutely fantastic. Some notable catches were with the Angelico group from Louisiana. In our standard 4 hour charter we got 8 total Tarpon bites and hook-ups, and got 3 beasts all the way to the boat for a DNA sample and healthy release. The Osterman group had unbelievable action and saw as many as 9 hook-ups and 4 to the boat for DNA samples and releases. The Goodwin party hooked into so many Tarpon that they cried for mercy after only 3 hours and we headed back to the dock with a crew of guys with rubber arms :-) ..... Now that's what we call some fantastic Tarpon fishing for sure. Now is the time! Prime Tarpon fishing season is here and will be peaking out over the next 8 weeks.
