Charlotte County, which includes Englewood and Manasota Key, is considered the "Tarpon Capital of the World" and features several annual tournaments.

With season starting in April, Punta Gorda, a town that shares the same waters, hosts two fishing tournaments. The first is a Kid's Cup Redfish Tournament at Fishermen's Village . This catch and release event is part of a Redfish Tracking Project affiliated with Mote Marine Lab.

The Oh Boy! Oberto Redfish Cup at Gilchrist Park is a three-day national competition sponsored by ESPN2; offering a grand prize of $40,000 for the largest catch.

In MAY, Boca Grande hosts a Ladies Day Tarpon Tournament (tel. 941-964-0568) and the World’s Richest Tarpon Tournament with several more through mid-June. Go HERE for tournament dates and information.

At Port Charlotte Beach, the Charlotte Harbor Kayak & Wildlife Festival, takes place for two days, with kayak tours, demonstrations, wildlife seminars, and a kayak fishing tournament.

Meanwhile, if you’re just looking to drop a line, the waters are filled with Cobia, mackerel, redfish, whiting and blues. Charter and rentals at Englewood Beach and Port Charlotte are recommended as they’re less expensive than neighboring Boca Grande.
