Fishing outside Colorado

May Tarpon

The month of May in Colorado usually means the start of high water and caddis hatches. However, on the other side of the country, May means the start of the migratory tarpon. Every May in Florida anglers gets the unique opportunity to have a chance to catch a large migratory tarpon. These fish cruise up the beaches of Florida on their annual migration to spawn. Fish upwards of 200lbs are not uncommon. Anglers will find the tarpon is large groups in May then will start breaking apart into smaller groups come June and July. By the time August rolls around the tarpon seem to dissipate. If you have not had the opportunity to go see this phenomenon I highly recommend it. So when the water gets high in Colorado think about booking a flight to Florida and giving it a shot.
