Top Three Questions to Ask Your Tarpon Fishing Charter Guide

Get the Best Tarpon Fishing Experience With Our Potential Guide

Fishing for tarpon is one of the most exciting and unpredictable ways to fish. Fortunately, you don’t need to go down to the keys to do it. The Tarpon Springs Fishing Center in Florida is a great place to do it. Every year, thousands of people from all over the country and the world make a trip to fish for tarpons. If you’re planning to go on a tarpon fishing charter, here are the top three questions you got to ask your guide or crew before booking a fishing trip:

What’s the average tarpon size?

There’s no simple or accurate way to know the average tarpon size. Tarpons vary in size, depending on the supply and demand of the fishery they’re harvested from, their age, and the area they’re harvested from. It takes tarpon more than two years to reach sexual maturity, so the average size and age at which they’re harvested have a huge impact on the size you can expect when you catch one.

What’s the average tarpon catch?

As mentioned above, there’s no one size fits for tarpon. It’s also hard to know their average weight. However, when fishing a tarpon fishery, you’ll almost always catch the biggest tarpon available. Check out the average tarpon weight each year, and the size of the tarpon harvested in each year if you want an idea of the average size you can expect to catch on your trip.

Do you offer any guarantees or refunds?

You can never guarantee that you’ll get to hook into a tarpon, so you shouldn’t expect a guarantee. Tarpon fishing is a highly skilled activity that’s extremely dangerous. You can never have full confidence that you’ll be able to hook a tarpon, so you should always be prepared to get nothing. In addition, the fish has no guarantee of making it home; however, you can get your money back if the guide doesn’t catch a tarpon. That is why you have to ask your guide about this.
