Tarpon Fishing

  • Starting at $5,320US
  • Santa Maria Cuba

Service Description

There is plenty of tarpon in the area from March through August, which is found in very clearly determined spots. There are many canals through which great numbers of tarpon come and go to the open sea, and where they are relatively easy to catch. We also have plenty of areas of bay fly fishing, with deeper waters up to 20 feet, in this areas tarpon are plentiful. Often times fish are sighted rolling in schools, and the skiffs position themselves ahead of them for intercepting casts. There are also wide flat areas, of 3 to 6-feet deep, where they are easy to spot due to the crystal-clear waters. For bonefish, there are huge areas of flats and mangrove vegetation to be fished on boat or by wading. The region abounds in permit too in deeper waters called floaters, some of them weighing up to 40 pounds. The average weight ranges from 25 to 30 pounds. All varieties of flats fish exist in the Gardens of the King, however, it is Tarpon that make this area famous for fly fishing. Resident Tarpon are present all year long, and range in size from 10-80 pounds. Beginning in March, Gardens of the King begins to see the larger migratory Tarpon, and the fish continue to be present through August. These fish can be in excess of 150 pounds, and are a true test of a fly angler‘s skills.
