Tarpon Fishing Saint Martin

3 posts in this topic


I'm going to Saint Martin right after Christmas and want to put myself on some tarpon. Any tips? I was thinking of bringing a rod and reel, or maybe just a reel and renting a rod there. I wanted to go with that one guide service, but he went out of business. I've heard I should use at least 300 yards of 50 lb braid, 6/0-10/0 hooks, and 80 lb mono leader. I've also heard I should go at night to a bridge, and also that the southwest side of the island is where the tarpon are. Is there a place on the island where I can get bait?

I have fished there a couple of times in the spring, with a local guide, that is no longer in business.. The 1st time my buddy and I both caught tarpon, jacks and snook... The second (a year later) nothing.... Same guide, same locals... That's fishing... I have not been back since the hurricane,  and don't know where you should go... The Island really got destroyed in the storm... There was the salt ponds, but I don't even know if they are still there... Good luck and put up a report when you go...
