tarpon fishing

Who knew that October would become the new tarpon season here along the Space Coast?!? The tarpon bite is red hot along the beaches and also in our lagoons. Watching 50 to 150 pound class silver kings blasting through mullet pods along the near coastal waters dispatch week has been nothing short of spectacular.

I’ve had my clients casting large top water plugs or soft plastic jerk baits on a jig head to imitate the mullet that are streaming down our beaches this past week. The best bite is in the crashing surf areas where the tarpon are set up to ambush the mullet. Spinner and blacktip sharks, big redfish, bluefish, crevalle Jack, snook and big Spanish mackerel are also striking these lures.

In our lagoons, juvenile tarpon have been on a hot feeding spree during the mid morning periods for most of this week. Live fingerling mullet and pilchards are by far the best ways to get these smaller poons to strike. Soft plastics and flies that imitate baitfish will also work during low light conditions
