Follow Capt. Rick Stanczyk and his tarpon fishing charters out of Islamorada in the Florida Keys.
If your interested in booking an islamorada tarpon fishing charter you’re in the right place. We offer full day (8 hour), 3/4 day (6 hour), and half day (4 hour) trips. Day trips typically start at 7 AM in the spring, and 6 AM in the summer unless otherwise discussed. We also offer late afternoon/evening trips, usually from 4 to 8 PM unless otherwise discussed. Tarpon fishing is one of my specialties – I focus on it more than any other type of fishing. While just about every backcountry/inshore fishing guide does some tarpon fishing throughout the year, many have other things they specialize in or prefer to do, especially during non-prime tarpon season (later summer/fall, late winter). You can bet if the conditions are right and tarpon are around, I am spending some time on my charters trying to catch them. I don’t mind getting up early, going later in the evening, or spending extra time catching the bait to try to give you the best shot at catching a tarpon. Knowing where the fish are, what tide/time they are feeding on, where the bait is, etc… is essential to productive tarpon fishing. I pride myself on trying to keep up with that information on a daily basis. I’ve fished over 300 trips a year in Islamorada and Everglades National Park some years, plus have a close working/friendly relation with other great Islamorada tarpon guides so you can bet I’ve done my homework before we leave the dock!
