Default Tampa Tarpon

My boss owns a place in the Tampa Bay area. He does some fishing, but not fly fishing. I'm working that angle....

Anyways, I left the company 4 years ago and just recently came back. Once he's found out that I was a fly fisherman, our discussions usually end up there. Recently, he's invited my wife and I to his place sometime in the spring for the Tarpon migration. This has been a dream of mine to fish for Tarpon, Permit and Bones. It's a long time before spring so I'm not getting my hopes up...things have a way of changing...

When do the Tarpon normally run?

Can I get away with a 9wt or should a 10wt be the standard?

What knots should I practice?

Mind, there will be no guide, so I'm gonna be doing this the hard way...on my own. Any advice would be helpful....
