May 15, 2012 : Bahia Honda Tarpon Report

Tarpon fishing at the Bahia Honda Bridge is back to full strenght. The water has cleared up nicely and the fish all came back in from offshore. We saw pods of hundreds of fish come in each evening last week. The bite has ranged anywhere from nil to epic, depending on the tides. Yesterday morning I had out customers Jeff and Eric and they were hooked up within 15 minutes from leaving the dock. In their 4 hour charter had 7 bites and got 3 fish to the boat. One fish we had to break off right next to the boat because a resident 14' Hammerhead was interested in a snack. From what we saw, the Tarpon swam off just fine and the Hammerhead left hungry. If you ever wanted to hook into a monster Tarpon, on a Captain Rapps Tarpon Fishing Charter, now is the time! We have 4 captains in our fleet: Captain Kevin, Captain Brandon, Captain Nate, and myself. We have some openings left now through June so please contact me ASAP to get booked in. We are just 20 minutes from Marathon, and 40 minutes from Key West in the florida keys.

Tarpon Report 5/1/12: TARPON CHARTERS BAHIA HONDA BRIDGE

Tarpon season is in full swing in the Florida Keys at the Bahia Honda Bridge. We have been into some nice schools of big Tarpon on a daily basis. This weekend the wind and rain were a challenge, however we were still locking into some good Tarpon. Even with the winds blowing today, we got 4 Tarpon in just 3 hours. They all ranged between 100 - 125lbs.  It's Tarpon fishing at it's best right now and for the rest of the month for sure. We still have a few openings available so please contact us now to get in on the action before someone else books your spot. Capt Rapps, Capt Kevin, Capt Brandon, & Capt Nate have them dialed in and are catching giant Tarpon right now on a consistent basis. We fish from the Bahia Honda State Park on Big Pine Key just south of Marathon, 30 minutes from Key West, and 45 minutes from Islamorada.

Fishing Report: Everglades City May 1, 2012

Spring time fishing has arrived! The warmer weather has really put the fish on prowl and they are out looking for food! Live bait has moved in closer to shore and has been obtainable on the calmer days this week.  We have been getting into some nice Redfish and big Sea Trout on a pretty consistent basis. We are happy to see some of the bigger Snook are also around. Although the Snook are still catch and release, slot size mommas are being caught in the 28"-33" range.  Capt Brandon, Capt Bob, and Capt Gary report good catches on both incoming and outgoing tides. Capt Brandon has been offshore on the calmer days and getting into some nice Cobia.
