Re: Orlando area in August - your top tips!
August can be a great time for tarpon fishing on the east coast. The Stuart area is consistent for both large and small fish and snook are there as well. I can recommend several fly guides in that area, if needed. It's about 2 hours from Orlando. The tarpon can show up in good numbers in the Indian River and the Mosquito Lagoon around Titusville but this can vary from year to year. In a good year, you can target tarpon inthe morning and redfish, drum and trout the rest of the day.
Southwest Florida can also have some excellent runs of false albacore (little tunny) along the beaches as well. These members of the tuna family will put your fly gear to the test.
