I have seen heaven on earth, better than Captiva for sure. Did some flats fishing scored some reds, snook at night as well. Had a dolphin put it's snout right on the transom, just unbelievable !!!
Crystal clear water. Anyone who goes to Florida yearly put this place on your list.
Unfortunately NO tarpon, got rained on 4 boats all skunked. Going back real soon, closer drive than I thought.
Enjoy some back bay and Pass photos

Take care

DB- I fished out of Boca Grande this March and I fell in love with the town also. It had a real good feel and the waters around there were awesome. I want to go back this summer and Tarpon fish- we'll see. Why was there no tarpon caught? Aren't the in yet?

I dunno know man. Trust me when I tell ya we had the best known guides around, about 700 hundred a boat, nationally known marina out of the Gasparilla Inn. Front came through, got rained on, I floated a crab for 4 hours, not one hit. Guide said this week to the next are the best. Still had a great time, just an awesome place

Snookmaster and I are heading back real soon, plus I have a keys trip in June. Don't worry , I will post a big Tarpon soon

Are you talking Boca Grande Pass?? An absolutely beautiful area with a fascinating history of the railroads transporting phosphate to the Gulf. Lots of multi-million dollar homes once you cross the toll bridge. I understand that the peak of tarpon fishing in the Pass is May/June. With the Pass being so narrow, it probably gets more crowded than the Rips, Shoe, or Tusseys at the height of striper season.

I bet water temp should be around mid 70s for sure. Clarity should be much better as well. It's time for some serious action in our waters now and I say it is about time.

I agree for sure sounds like a plan.I'm hoping the bait shack or the other will have some big shrimp as well. I called them Sat and they had good ones then.

Doc,

Glad to see you got your trip in. Too bad about the tarpon. But, you are definitely in a dream area.

I had carpal May 4, stitches out May 12. Asked my doc if I could fish this past weekend, he said no. I know why, since I tried more than I should have over the weekend. Maybe this weekend.

Good luck on Wednesday---I'll look for the post and pix! :D :D
