Boca Grande is home to various species of fish, however, there’s no doubt which one rules the water when it comes to action and excitement. The Tarpon is well known for its incredible strength and thrilling, powerful runs and jumps. Captain Christopher Taylor has dedicated most of his life to helping people catch Tarpon. Targeting The Silver King has been a Taylor family tradition for the longest time. Tarpon fishing runs in the blood so to speak. At the young age of 5 the Captain caught his first Tarpon weighing around 80 pounds in the deep waters of Boca Grande Pass with his father Mark Taylor. Even before that his mother Cynthia Taylor was fighting Tarpon in Boca Grande Pass while pregnant with the Captain. Captain Taylor uses traditional live bait methods for catching Tarpon in Boca Grande Pass during Boca Grande Tarpon fishing charters. The most common live baits used during Boca Grande Tarpon fishing charters include Blue Crabs, Pass Crabs, Squirrelfish, and Jumbo Shrimp. During Boca Grande Tarpon Fishing Charters live baits are drifted along the bottom of the pass as well as various water columns where the Tarpon can be found using a transducer bottom machine. This method requires constant adjustment of the line depth to keep the baits within the “strike zone”. The live baits are presented as naturally as possible by using extra long leaders, heavy lead weights, and constant maneuvering of the boat by the Captain. Captain Christopher Taylor operates out of “Savannah,” a custom built 21’ Clearwater 2000CC bay boat. Originally built to the Captain’s standards in 2019. This modern vessel allows for a comfortable drift through Boca Grande Pass during Boca Grande Tarpon fishing charters. There’s a lot of fishing space and a shaded T-top for hot summer days. The boat also has a Bluetooth stereo, so feel free to bring your favorite playlist! Boca Grande Pass is a deep water channel that attracts Tarpon during their spawning season. The best months for Boca Grande Tarpon Fishing are late April through early August. Tarpon fishing in Boca Grande is a unique experience that you will not forget!
