Tarpon Fishing

Capt. David Ide
December 20, 2016
Fort Lauderdale - Saltwater Fishing Report

Dec 16,2016
The silver king, the mighty tarpon, is the Lady Pamela II sportfish of the week. These majestic silver giants are roaming the intracoastal and nearshore waters of Fort Lauderdale and Hollywood in search of schools of mullet and pilchards. These are great fish to target when the winter weather makes it too rough to go offshore. The fish we have around here are big too, with many fish over 6 feet and weighing more than 100 lbs. Megalops atlanticus are truly prehistoric fish that have been around about as long as the alligators and crocodiles. They can live 100 years, with a world record size of 280 lbs. and stretching eight feet long.

Tarpon are spectacularly acrobatic fish, often skyrocketing 10 feet or more into the air when hooked. We like to fish for tarpon at night, using live mullet drifted right on the bottom near the entrance to Port Everglades inlet. Because we are fishing inside weather is not an issue, and there are plenty of other places inshore to fish, if the bite is not on at the inlet. There is always something catch here in south Florida, even if the weather is bad!

Tight Lines,
