This season is one of the best for tarpon fishing in the off-shore waters off the coast of Key West Florida; Key West Top Guides reports a string of highly successful Key West fishing charters aiming for large tarpon
Online PR News – 19-May-2010 – – While fishing in Key West Florida is known for being excellent during any time of the year, springtime and summertime are particularly exciting and successful times of the year for Key West fishing charters. With the waters warming up, dozens of species of fish that hide away for the cooler winter months come back in full force in the spring. This week, Key West's leading center for Key West fishing charters, Key West Top Guides, reports that tarpon fishing on the offshore waters of Key West have been particularly successful.
Key West Top Guides captains say that you can find tarpon in offshore charter trips throughout the year but it is really in April and May that the largest populations of tarpon hit the waters of Key West. Tarpon are known as one of top sports fish due to the enduring and oftentimes challenging battle they give anglers. Of course, it is this type of challenge that expert Key West fishing charter captains get most excited about and the kind of challenge that gives guest anglers the most memorable fishing Key West experience.
Last week, Captain Garcia of the Key West Top Guides reported fourteen tarpon catches on a full-day fishing excursion, with the largest catch weighing over 130 pounds. Captain Garcia is just one of over a dozen fishing captains that work with Key West Top Guides, all of whom have been fishing the waters of Key West and the Florida Keys for at least a decade. They are highly familiar with the patterns of various fish species in different settings ranging from deeper offshore waters to the shallow flats areas in the Gulf of Mexico.
May is not only one of the most active months for tarpon and other Key West fishing species, it is also one of the year's busiest months for travelers from all over the world. Key West Top Guides runs half-day, three-quarter-day, and full-day Key West fishing excursions every single day. With Key West fishing as popular as it is, there are days that all fishing captains are booked weeks in advance.
"So far, it looks like May is going to be the best month for Key West fishing charters of this year, so far," says Key West Top Guides reservations agent Terry Langsfeld.
