It is on the bottom of the Gulf of Mexico on the Termonis Lagoon.

I went there over 30 years ago with friends from The Fly Shop travel department to explore the area for Tarpon.

After several days we decided that we were 20 years too late.

We did hear that giant tarpon run into the big lagoon to spawn up in it's river on a full moon in June where they bait fish for them with catfish.

We fished all kinds of mangroves and had almost zero luck for baby Tarpon or anything else.

We decided that there was just too many people living in the area and had over fished it.


The best Baby Tarpon in Isla del Sabalo west of Merida.

Tarpon Cay lodge has good baby Tarpon and adults northwest of Cancun.

Campeche, southwest of Merida is pretty well over fished now too.


Mid-summer is best for Baby Tarpon
