The tarpon have reigned for more than a century as one of the most sought-after inshore game fishes. Tarpon are found in warm-water estuaries along the Atlantic coast in North and South America, the Gulf of Mexico, the islands of the Caribbean, and along west coast of tropical Africa. Down in the Florida Keys and other places like the keys, that inhabit estuaries, creeks, canals, saltwater and eelgrass flats and other various saltwater configurations. The larger fish roam around the outer tidal channels and open waters of the Gulf of Mexico and Southern Atlantic.

Guides often speak of tarpon that migrate along the coasts from Keys up to the Carolinas and Virginia as “ocean fish”. They typically have blue-green backs, a violent sheen, and are very strong fish. The gulf fish are brownish or olive-colored backs. There are some that believe that gulf fish migrate north along Florida's west coast to the big bend and west to possibly Louisiana and Texas.

There are also “Glades Fish”-resident tarpon that don't seem to leave the Florida Everglades. Glades tarpon might retreat to deep water holes but on some mild, sunny midwinter days, they show up in the open bays throughout the backcountry. The fishing on those days can be epic, jumping and catching multiple fish.
