Video Hatch: “Let’s Save The Boca Grande Tarpon Habitat”

April 18, 2012 By: Benjamin Clary

Boca Grande Pass in southwest Florida is one of those handful of places that stakes claim to being the “Tarpon Capital of the World.”  The very small spot is known for the huge number of migratory tarpon that stack into a few deep holes.  Unfortunately, according to some, the numbers have been decimated by unethical angling techniques.  With this video, a few local guides hope to bring public awareness to the plight of a population of tarpon and a location that is far over-fished.
