After years of targeting tarpon across the South East, few seasonal migrations match the excitement of Central Florida/s Atlantic Minnow Run. During the late summer months of mid July to early August, millions of small anchovy gather just of the beach wash from Vero to Jupiter. This massive collection of baitfish bring in huge numbers of tarpon, sharks, snook and jacks within a stones throw of the beach.

This migration offers a unique opportunity for shore anglers to have full access to some incredible fishing action using a variety of lures and fly.

In this video, Capt. Ross Gallagher heads over to Jensen Beach, Florida to target land-based tarpon during the minnow run migration with Hogy fan Dane Yelencsics. We cover a variety of tips for successfully hooking and landing tarpon on a variety of Hogy Pro Tail Paddle Swim Baits. View More Here:
