Boca Grande, Florida – Tarpon Fishing Capital of the World
September 28, 2020
Beautiful Boca Grande on Gasparilla Island, is the home of white sugar-sand beaches, swaying palm trees, and privacy for its elite residents. Few automobiles sully Boca Grande’s pristine roads – they are allowed on only two streets. Golf carts are the primary mode of transportation.
Boca Grande has a long and storied history, starting with the Native American Calusa people who lived there 5000 years ago, right up through the pirate rum smuggler José Gaspar who gave the island its name. Today the tropical beauty of Gasparilla Island is the ideal backdrop for films like Denzel Washington’s Out of Time and celebrity weddings.
And of course, tarpon fishing in Boca Grande.
You could get to this island paradise by commercial flight, but the closest airport is in Coral Creek – an hour away. And another hour to get back there later. Or, you could do what knowledgeable fishermen and adventure-seekers do…
