Early May has been a tough time for Tarpon fishing in Homosassa this year. The high winds and late cold fronts have had the fish in a little bit of a funk. Water temperature plays a huge roll in Tarpon migration patterns. Without perfect condition Tarpon will not travel to our flats and surrounding areas. Over the past few weeks conditions have sustained and water temperatures are on the rise. Fishing is getting better and better every day.
Located in Citrus County, Florida, Homosassa is the home several IGFA world records for Tarpon on fly. Currently holding the 20lb, 16lb and 12lb class records respectively. Top anglers in the sport of fly fishing such as Tom Evans and Billy Pate have fished the waters of Homosassa in search of world records since the 1970’s.
