When is the best time to catch Tarpon around St. Simons Island?
The absolute best time to catch Tarpon around St. Simons Island and coastal Georgia is from June until August each season. Tarpon are warm water predators and prefer water temperatures over 78 degrees. Chances to catch Tarpon are greater near the new moon and full moon phases in our area.
The faster moving and higher tides during the full and new moon phases get the fish moving and feeding on the massive schools of Menhaden up and down the Georgia coast as the Tarpon bulk up after their long journey up the east coast. Due to the plentiful bait fish supply found in our area, many of the migrating Tarpon stay here all summer with the bait schools. Many of the Tarpon will continue to migrate north, but in past years we have enjoyed the incredible amount of Tarpon that stay right here around St. Simons and Jekyll Island all summer long.
