Tarpon fishing in the Keys can still be quite good in June but they are thinning out rapidly by July. So it all depends on which month you make the trip. If it's July I'd look more up the Gulf Coast especially towards the Homossasa area and up...there was a good article in Flyfishing in Saltwaters recently about the untapped tarpon fishery in Northwest Florida. If I couldn't do the Keys I'd go there...but the Keys, IME is a magical place and I love the gin clear water and sightcasting to big poons there.

Also, it is typically easier to find a guide later in June, earlier June is tougher as you are in peak prime tarpon season in the Keys and all the good guides are usually booked solid.
