As the official start of summer, June is an exciting time for fishing in many places. The weather is warmer and people are switching to vacation mode, planning trips and trying to add some adventure to their lives. June fishing can be very productive in many different climates, and the opportunities for your next big trip are endless. If you’re looking for a little inspiration, you’ve come to the right place. Check out our list of adventurous June fishing destinations and what species you will catch while you are there.
1. Tarpon in Florida
Tarpon is a migratory species of fish that is found in schools along the coast usually from April and all summer. Look for the infamous “silver kings” near bays, rivers and passes. Be ready for an adrenaline battle as their average weight is between 100 and 200 pounds.
2. Yellowfin tuna in Hawaii
Yellowfin tuna is the favorite of heavyweight athletes and will thoroughly exhaust even the most seasoned fishfighter. The North Pacific bite is hot in the summer, making Hawaii a hotspot for tuna.
3. Marlin in the Dominican Republic
June is one of the best times to fish for the mighty predator marlin. Blue and white marlin can be found hungry and hunting on the north coast of the Dominican Republic.
4. Salmon in Alaska
The first run of King Salmon appears in the rivers from June and is the main fishing well into July. Popular with flying and conventional gear, this is one bucket list trip you won’t soon forget.
5. Bonefish in the Bahamas
Who doesn’t love a good tropical vacation? Combine it with first-class bonefishing in the turquoise Bahamas apartments and you have a true fishermen’s paradise.
If you choose to stay this year, fishing in the June Lake can be just as productive. When planning your June fishing trip, be sure to check out license requirements no matter where you go. Get out now and enjoy nature!
