Juro, best recommendation from me is not the Keys but rather the Gulf Coast and renting a boat. Along the beaches north of Pine Island and Boca Grande Pass are beach tarpon that you look for and intercept with a trolling motor. Much more doable than flats where you need to pole to the tarpon. Unless of course you are good a poling a boat in which case you can get it done in the Keys but you may come up with some goose eggs until you learn the various areas. I have friends who went DIY but they live in the Keys and spent a number of years fishing with guides - and as much as they know the areas, I still see more poons with my guide than they manage on their own.
