Tarpon April

Recommended Posts

Hows the tarpon fishing mid-April? Recommendation on places to stay with wife and guides? Short 2-day trip as we may be in Ft Lauderdale for a conference.  If she goes fishing with me lodging doesnt have to be 4-5 star.  If she stays back maybe look for a nice place.  Cheeca looked like a cool spot.

A lot depends on wind and water temps. You will need that golden temperature range of 76 to 80 degrees and hope that the wind isn't blowing 15 to 20 knots to insure any real success. I have had some good luck in April around the bridges in Islamorada that time of year. If the wind is calm, you'll find the first real push of tarpon ocean side that have not seen every fly or lure know to man thrown at them and they can be very eager to eat. Your choice of Cheeca is a good one. Good luck

So challenge is booking in advance could leave you fishing in cold water and strong wind with no real good chance of catching any? Im looking to fly fish.
