If your looking to catch Tarpon in Volusia county, now is the time to try. It is one fish that basically comes to the surface and waves to greet you. You can find them in the Ormond/Daytona Beach Halifax ICW (river), all the way back to the shallowest tributaries that branch off the Tomoka River. Tarpon can be caught on live bait, artificial lures, and my favorite, the fly.
I have a high success rate landing Tarpon on my charters. With that being said, not everyone gets off the boat with an amazing Tarpon story to tell. Some days are epic, some days are just ok, and some days are downright frustrating. We are dealing with mother nature after all and we must play by her rules. Rule number one, she doesn’t always play by the rules.
In my opinion, nothing beats fishing inshore for the mighty silver king! Check out this little video I put together to give you an idea of what Tarpon are all about here in Ormond.
