Best Tarpon Fishing Charters in Tampa Bay Area

The majority of Afishionado Guide Services’ tarpon fishing charters consist of cruising the Pinellas and Manatee county shoreline with the rising sun. Once situated, Osborne scans the horizon in search of rolling or daisy chaining tarpon. The boat is then positioned to let the tarpon approach for a prefect cast. Other times, Osborne anchors the boat in tarpon travel corridors and uses fresh cut bait.
