Not much is said about tarpon fishing in Bimini, but it's something to add to your Bimini catch list.
It seems like not long ago, the season turned from spring to summer. Turning the corner from summer to autumn means changes to the Bimini fishing scene. Shorter days mean cooler water and more active fish. In September, expect the bonefish to be bigger; most should be in the 8-to-10 pound range, with some larger bones in the mix. The North Sound area has been productive this summer and this trend should continue through September. Permit are fairly plentiful and size-wise they are running in the 30-to-35 pound range. Although tarpon fishing is generally best in June and July, there are still some large tarpon in the bay, and often along the ocean side of North Point. These fish can range over 150 pounds. Not much is said about tarpon fishing in Bimini, but the experience is definitely something to add to your Bimini catch list. September is a quiet time in Bimini, but with many of the summer visitors departing, you can enjoy Bimini and “see it like a local” and “fish it like a local.”
