Heading down to sw Florida in a few weeks, weather permitting, and planning to do some tarpon fly fishing in the creeks surrounding Estero bay.

Anyone fishing the surrounding creeks and seeing any juvi tarpon? Also how is the water?

I had my poorest fishing this past winter down there, no baitfish in the creeks and very few tarpon. Hope fishing is improving!

Stay safe with the storm coming!

Wish I could help you with baby tarpon spots around Estero Bay.
But, I target them closer to home here in Cape Coral and Pine Island.
They are very challenging as you must find them rolling or tailing then figure out how to get one to strike.

Good luck.

I have also found JV tarpon rolling often on the north end of Pine Island and not been able to get them to eat! Any ideas out there? I read one suggestion that tarpon are the laziest fish out there and the best way to get them to strike is to move your fly or lure as slow as possible. I intend to try that the next time I find them. I have always believed that when tarpon are eating, they will eat anything, but when they are not eating, they won’t take a live mullet!
