Bokeelia tarpon

Hey y’all I’m planning a fishing trip down to Bokeelia next weekend with some buddies and I was wondering if the tarpon showed up yet. If not what’s the next best thing to target this time of year down there.

    I'm further north, but I'd say yes considering that our tarpon fishing is picking up in Venice and Sarasota. Not in massive numbers but they're around in the passes, seeing some juvies rolling in the canals near the passes as well. Snook fishing is really hot right now as well, only gonna be getting better on the beaches and passes as the water gets warmer.
    Paddle faster, I hear banjo music.
