When it comes to saltwater trophy fishing, the species that comes to the mind of most fly fishermen is the Tarpon. Fishing for this king of saltwater game fish is available in the year round.
Tarpon typically range from 5 to 80 lbs and some get up to 200 lbs in size. The larger Tarpon are caught during their migration from March through July and again from September through November though monster fish can be caught anytime of the year. Baby Tarpon can be found in many locations.
What is meant by the word “Baby” is that they are juvenile Tarpon that live very close to shore alternating between fresh water and saltwater. Don’t let that word deceive you because they are as game fish go, trophy fish that range from 5 to 80 lbs.
