Phil Hartz, AKA ‘Poonboy, had a nice 4 days of fly fishing for tarpon in Sanibel-Captiva last week. The Minneapolis native and longtime client/friend hooked 7 on fly, releasing 2. The tarpon can be found from the gulf at Ft Myers Beach all the way north to the Big Bend area, Pine Island Sound , Matlacha along with the river. In other words, EVERYWHERE. Now, having said that is no way insinuating the are always caught. Snook continue to cruise the beaches and redfish along with jacks are being taken along the shorelines and oyster bars in the back county. Sharks can be found everywhere also. Threadfin herring, pilchards, pinfish, crabs, flies, and any kind of cut bait will work for the silver kings.
