Pine Island Tarpon Fishing In June

Fish like this one are coming out of the woods up and down Matlacha Pass right now.  Don't expect to see them everywhere but on the flat calm mornings most canals will have them rolling by the dozens or even hundreds.  If you can't feed them a fly go to pinfish of large shrimp hooked through the head and free-lined into the rolling schools.  Juvenile tarpon season is just beginning in SW Florida and should last through the summer and into mid fall.
