There are many ways in South Florida to hook and catch Tarpon. The possibilities are almost endless but here are the few ways that we target tarpon- Night Time in the various bridges and channels, on the flats with laid up fish, in open bays different times of the year, and deep in the back-country, where some of the little babies are.

Using spin gear, we catch them on live bait and artificial. I will use live shrimp, pinfish, ladyfish, crabs, and mullet. The type of bait we use all depends on the area and time of the year.

I do fish a lot for tarpon using artificial baits. I like throwing big plugs that look like mullet and ladyfish when I am fishing in the everglades.

Tarpon on fly has to be in my opinion the most exciting way to catch a tarpon. People spend thousands of dollars each year to chase these fish with a fly rod.

You can spend countless hours on a skiff and not have a shot on a fish, but as soon as you see a tarpon eat your fly you will be hooked for life.

I love sight fishing in general, but when it comes to sight fishing tarpon there is something about it that makes me want to be on the water every day.

I am a South Florida native and full time fishing guide who has been fishing Southern Florida my entire life. The first time I visited Everglades National Park was a true life changing experience. After attending FAU and Nova Southeastern University on a baseball scholarship, I continued on and played 3 years of minor league baseball. I then returned home to my number one passion, fishing Everglades National Park.

The styles of fishing we do are a little challenging at times, but always fun. I am endorsed by Orvis and specialize in fly fishing and light tackle fishing for tarpon, redfish, snook, trout, bonefish, permit, shark, barracuda, and more. I trailer my 17’8ft Hells Bay skiff all over South Florida so we can experience the best the Glades have to offer.
