Inshore, Offshore, Night Tarpon
Launching from: Big Pine Key, Florida
Tidewater heads south with boat in tow, our winter operations based out of Big Pine Key which is about 25 miles from Key West, Florida. Sailfish typically arrive mid-January and stay through March in fishable numbers.
Tidewater Charters uses the same 23′ custom Jones Brother’s center console boat that we target striped bass with in Maryland. Weather does play a part in our offshore fishing ability but when the winter winds blows out of the offshore grounds we are still able to fish a variety of environments for several different hard fighting species.
Along with our inshore and offshore fishing program we love to catch aggressive juvenile tarpon are night in the Big Pine area. There are lots of pinch points and feed areas where the juvenile tarpon, up to 60lbs, congregate to feed at night on outgoing tides. It’s a ton of fun and many anglers have the opportunity to hook multiple tarpon in a night. Contact Tyler now if you are interested in the opportunity to fish out of Florida with Tidewater.
