Friends,

I am new to this forum and happy find there are others who dream of this fish. I just got back from Florida where,in two days, I fed five tarpon, hooked four, and landed my first one. Anyway, I am amp'ed and want to catch more. I am trying to figure out where I can sight cast to tarpon in relatively shallow water here in Texas. I am looking for any help I can get--weather patterns, tides, currents, water clarity, spots, flies, techniques, etc., anything. Thanks in advance for your help. Tight lines!

I don't know about sight casting but I know people catch them anywhere from the Arroyo River to Port Mansfield and Padre Island Jetties. Had a friend hook three last weekend on flies. I know a guide on the island that really concentrates on tarpon with flies. If you want his info pm me.

You can sight cast them in Texas but our tarpon fishery is mostly offshore. Find them rolling in 15-50 ft. of water and you're in business.

If conditions are right, and you have a good 4WD vehicle, a trip down Padre Island seashore from Corpus to the Mansfield Jetties might also provide some casting opportunities to tarpon...along with jacks, specks, reds and the other denizens of the surf.
