cayo costa island


natgeotravelP hoto by @CarltonWard / Sunset over Boca Grande Pass, on Florida’s west coast between Gasparilla and Cayo Costa islands where Charlotte Harbor flows into the Gulf of Mexico. During the late spring and early summer, anglers from around the world gather here to drift outgoing tides in hopes of catching tarpon - a migratory game fish that can weigh up to 200 pounds.
