Tarpon have always been a dream catch of mine but I have never had any luck.. I finally had enough failed attempts and booked a trip with Captain Larry. We met up at 6am and found the first school fish within 20 minutes of leaving the ramp. After setting up on the fish perfectly I was hooked up on the within minutes and landed my first ever tarpon! It was estimated at 100 pounds and it is a memory I will never forget!
I chartered Captain Larry in February of 2015. We targeted sheepshead and black drum fishing inshore of Sarasota bay. We had a lost count day on both species and had plenty of fresh fish for dinner that night. His local knowledge and expertise of the waters is top notch. I will be fishing with Captain Larry again next February.
I came down to Bradenton Florida on vacation with my wife and wanted to go fishing for snook because I've read so much about them and it's always been a bucket list fish of mine. Not only did my wife and catch our first snook but we both also completed our first inshore slam catching snook, redfish, and trout!!! I highly recommend Captain Larry and can't wait to get back down for my next trip!!
