tarpon fishing chartersOne of the greatest game fish are tarpon – the only members of the family Megalopidaeare.  Tarpon are a large fish, they can grow to be nearly 300 pounds. Tarpon can be four to eight feet long! Tarpon are famous for dramatic leaps out of the water after being caught and can keep an angler in a battle lasting hours. Tarpons prefer water temperatures of 72 to 82°F (22 to 28°C); below 60°F (15.6°C) degrees they become inactive, and temperatures under 40°F (4.5°C) can be lethal.  Everglades Fishing Charters Tarpon are prized not only because of their great size, but also because of the fight they put up and their spectacular leaping ability. Tarpon are bony fish and their meat is not desirable. Most tarpon are released after they are caught. Numerous tarpon fishing tournaments are held in Florida each year focused on catching tarpon.  If you would like an opportunity to catch an amazing tarpon in the waters of the Gulf of Mexico, visit the USGC certified fishing guides below and inquire about the current tarpon fishing activity – tell them Marco Island Living sent you.
