Tarpon season is full of image opportunities like this.

February 1 2015 – Traditionally March is the soft Kick off to tarpon season here in Key West. With a late winter the fish will start to show up around the 10th where we as tarpon fishing guides can ethically and officially book a “Tarpon fishing charter”.

What I mean by that is that every year the days we can start to consistently focus on and have a shot at catching tarpon with our anglers here in Key West fluctuates. Through my 20 years of guiding Key West tarpon fishing trips I have seen it start as early as late January and unfortunately for many anglers one year we did not have tarpon till almost April. (boy did that suck).

So we pick March to start our “tarpon season” here in Key West. Not just us, but every other fishing guide in Key West as well. What does that mean to you? Book NOW!… If you think you might be coming to Key West during tarpon fishing season (March – June) BOOK NOW..  You won’t save a dime but you will save yourself a headache the sooner you can book.

Here at Dream Catcher Charters we will be sold out every day in tarpon season starting March 1st. Two trips per day on every one of our professionally guided boats. Last minute bookings (although possible) are a crap shoot. Do not delay.

Here are a couple of tips. 

Play Your Cancellation Policies – We have a 7 day no penalty cancellation policy here at Dream Catcher Charters. Book your day.. You can always cancel outside 7 days if needed or even adjust your date. no issues. Inside 7 days.. you will lose your 20% deposit.

Do Not Wait To See About Weather – If you wait till the week you come down to see what the weather will be doing to pick you day. Well, you may get good or even great weather but chances are large your tarpon fishing guide is gonna SUCK!. If he is open for a morning trip when you called the night before, he is a rookie or not worth fishing with. That said.. we get cancellations and have some holes to fill in the afternoons that we may have availability on last minute. Do not hesitate to call.

I Have To Wait Till Last Minute To Book – Well, thats part of life sometimes.. GOOD NEWS.. The newer fishing guides will still be trying to fill their books and We know who they are.
