Silver King

Boca Grande - Lee, FL

Boca Grande Pass is known as the Tarpon Capital of the World for several reasons. The #1 reason they are here in such great numbers during the months of May and June is the Hill Tides. The action is steady daily during these months as crabs flush out from the Peace River and Charlotte Harbor to thousands of hungry migratory tarpon. The hill tides are the strongest by far, and crabs blanket the entire pass as they get flushed out to sea. The tarpon goes into a frenzy, smashing crabs on the surface in a fantastic display of nature. If you can fish during these specific dates, your chances of hooking into a silver king are much higher.
