If you want to learn how to catch sharks, handle them safely and release them like a Mad Fin Shark Series Pro, then round up your fishing buddies for a trip you will never forget. Sharks are readily available year round in Florida, but during the Tarpon migration the giants show up to prey on the Silver Kings.
Tarpon are one of the most challenging and prized inshore gamefish in Florida. When fighting Tarpon, one of the challenges is keeping them from becoming shark bait, and trust me, there is no adrenaline rush quite like trying to keep your 150 pound Tarpon from getting eaten by a 12 foot shark. Needless to say, we like to keep our Tarpon fishing separate from our Shark fishing, but you can split your day up and dedicate some time to both species in Southwest Florida from Boca Grande to Key West.
Southwest Florida Waters:
Fort Myers, Naples and Cape Coral, Florida offer a variety of great fishing opportunities. Our favorites include sight fishing the flats for redfish, catching big "Gator" sized trout on artificial lures and hunting in the backcountry mangroves for snook. If you're looking for a bigger battle than take on a Tarpon or Shark. For the Ultimate battle go hand to hand with a Goliath Grouper big enough to eat you. You’ll find the richest water and the wildest territory in the state from Naples south through 10,000 Islands, the Everglades and the Florida Keys.
Captain Bo Johnson & Deidra Bridger:
A former alligator wrestler turned Pro Angler, in addition to being one of the area's top guides, Captain Johnson is also a Redfish Cup All-star and ESPN Madfin Shark Pro. On the water and in the stand Bo is constantly pushing himself and his equipment to the limits which is why he and his First Mate, Deidra Bridger, use top gear that can handle the kind of punishment they dish out. Based out of Cape Coral, the D-Bo show rolls down Florida’s Southwest Coast from Ft. Myers to Key West catching everything from Redfish, Snook and Tarpon to Sharks and Giant Goliath Grouper.
