Tarpon Anyone?

Key West - Saltwater Fishing Report

TARPON ANYONE? Fishing report of April and May

It's that time of year. Welcome to tarpon season. I just loved it out here. I always get jacked
up in April, May and June. With me, it's real early in the morning. 4:30am or leave at 5pm till
1:00 am. Most of the time we get a fish to the boat if we fish within this time frame. On a half-day charter its 50/50 and on a three-quarter day its 70/30. Your best chances are on a split. Do both. Early is still the best. If no one has ever told you, most tarpon are night feeders. So hmm? No 8 to 5.
I fish Key West and Panama. I am in Key West till late September. So, if it is tarpon you want, bring a video camera and brace yourself. You won't forget fishing Key West with me on my
Maverick. I am a believer in live bait. Pinfish and pilchards. Tarpon, like many other fish, do not have plastic as part of their diet(normally). My primary line is Power Pro 40 with a heavy mono
leader and circle hooks. Tarpon fishing should be sight casting which gets easier as the sun is
coming up. What a beautiful combination! Sunrise in Key West harbor with silver kings rolling everywhere No one and I mean no one fishes as early or around more perfect tides. It is all about water temp and tides. And, if the tide is slack, why are we fishing? I am usually on my way back to the dock by then.
Call me and you will hear tarpon on my voice. No excuses just results. I am on the boat a lot this time of year so call me at 305-3041805.
I offer a VIP guide service. We get it done.

Take care

Professional guide in Key West for 20 years. Like most quides, Captain Paul Ollariu is a great fisherman. He grew up in Florida and has been fishing since he was nine years old. But, now, guiding gives Capt Paul greater pleasure than catching the fish. It is a very satisfying experience to see the smiling happy faces of his anglers when they have a tarpon on and the fish leaps out of the water. The look of anticipation as they bring the fish to the boat is something that stays in his
