On the water, on the fish... Tarpon!

This summer, the fishing for migratory Tarpon has been strong at Tarpon Cay Lodge. Each year, from June to September the "Silver King" arrives to feed vigorously on the abundant baitfish in water depths of 6 to 25 feet. Most of these Tarpon range between 40 to 80 pounds... however, some much larger have been landed by fortunate anglers. This fishing can be truly epic!
