    Default May is the peak of the Tarpon spawning run in the Florida Keys.

    Many just anchor up their boats in areas on the Atlantic side where the schools of Tarpon are know to travel.


    Here is a good video to get you excited:

    My wife and I used to rent a patio boat at Bahia Honda state park. We'd cruise around catching lots of barracuda and jacks, but once in a while we'd anchor on the ocean side and you could spot the tarpon schools cruising toward you. Over those white sands beaches they were easy to see just like in the film as they migrated south.

    Seems like those schools were always just out of reach for a long cast. We'd move the boat, and the schools would move too from just where we were.

    Great Bob......

    I knew many old timers who went the same week with the same guide for decades.
