Tarpon Fishing off the Coast of Anna Maria Island
Tarpon Fishing off the Coast of Anna Maria Island

By Captain Mark Howard – SumoTime Fishing Charters

With the onset of Summer ,fishing is turning hot just like the weather. The legendary Silver King Tarpon will be off the beaches and in the passes.

Fish from 30 pounds to 200 pounds will be cruising the waters around Anna Maria Island.

Pass Crabs, Jumbo Shrimp, Pinfish, Threadfins, Pilchards, and Mullet are some of the baits of choice to catch this majestic Linesider.

Redfish are heating up with schools in the potholes and up in the Mangroves of Tampa Bay.

Greenbacks and Pinfish will entice these  crimson beauties to chew.  Speckled trout are on the flats and will eagerly take a greenback or artificial bait.

Early mornings and afternoon trips are  best to beat the heat.
