Tarpon fishing has been consistent very early in the mornings on the beach throwing small crabs and threadfins. The trick is to sneak up quietly on them with your trolling motor. When casting, pitch long casts leading to the school of fish. Many times, a small float will help to drift your crab/threadfin back to the group of rolling tarpon. Some tarpon have shown on the Hill (just inside Boca Grande Pass) and tend to eat the same offerings. Adding a small split shot will increase your chances of a hook up.
