Hey Juro. I have a reliable inside source tell me that guys are getting tarpon on conventional gear in the surf in Clearwater.

The tarpon should be making their runs down the coasts now. You'll probably find a lot of tarpon if you go onto any of the piers...thing is, they don't allow fly fishing on the pier.

IMO, right now your best bet is Clearwater off the beaches. Last year a friend of mine was on fire with conventional gear, catching tarpon out of the surf. He would nail 4-5 ever few hours!

Clearwater sounds interesting, beautiful beach, restaurants and nightlife as well as a boat rental firm just inside the break to the outside not to mention lots of structure all around the area.

The key is timing the migration. Probably getting pretty close by now.

Yea, the tarpon should start showing up there in numbers any time. Another good place to try would be Boca Grande right off the seawall breakers.
