Charlotte Harbor is one of Florida's most popular sport fishing destinations with approximately 270 square miles of open water surface.
The Harbor has miles of mangrove shore lines and grass flats that house an abundant variety of fish species. Tarpon, redfish, snook, trout, cobia, flounder, jack crevalle and the endngered Sawfish are among the variety of fish that call the harbor home.
Boca Grande is known for the world's best tarpon fishing and yields more tarpons than any other location in the world.
Tarpon can reach sizes up to 8 feet and weigh up to 280 pounds.
Due to its majestic appearance, the tarpon has earned the nickname "silver king".
Each spring, tens of thousands of these giant fish, migrate into Boca Grande Pass and stay for around three months. They come to the area to feast on crabs and other food swept in and out on the daily tides, preparing for their offshore spawning season.
