Welcome to the on-line home of the Cape Coral Tarpon Hunters Club.

Want to experience the thrill of world class sportfish without a 60ft “sportfishing boat”? Southwest Florida is Tarpon Central! Join us for camaraderie, competition and more fun than a new puppy. We fish the nearshore gulf, Pine-Island Sound and the Caloosahatchee.

As we enter our 43rd season our members have caught nearly 8000 Tarpon and welcome the chance to introduce new members to this exciting pastime.

Cape Coral Tarpon Hunters' Meetings are held the third Thursday of the month (guests are always welcome) from February through September at the Cape Coral Yacht Club, 5819 Driftwood Parkway, Cape Coral, Florida.  

The primary purpose of the annual "Tarpon Fishing Clinic" held at 7 PM the third Thursday of February is to educate the general public on the proper methods to safely catch and release a Tarpon.  Demonstrations include tackle and equipment selection; knot tying; bait selection and rigging; cast net throwing and appropriate  techniques for fighting big fish and achieving a high survival rate release.  Through this event it is hoped that the attendees will apply the knowledge received to conserve the Tarpon fishery through reduced Tarpon deaths due to improper equipment or mishandling.  The secondary purpose of the "Clinic" is to induce prospective members that embrace our no-kill, circle hook practices to apply for club membership. 

Throughout the season we have meetings with featured speakers, weekend on-water “hunts”, a picnic, and a “Special Pops” community service event. Post season we have our Awards Banquet in October to celebrate the successes and highlight the flubs.
