Well glad to report my first islamorada night tarpon fishing charter for 2013 was a success! We had plenty of mixed bait including cigar minnows, crabs, pinfish, and live shrimp. The wind had swung around from the north and some cooler air was here, which usually makes things tough, but we had a few bites. Caught 1 out of 3 fish, our successful bite on a crab. Did have a couple others on big shrimp and cigar minnow. Islamorada march tarpon fishing at night can be good though we have not had ideal weather thus far with the late cold fronts. Hopefully after this weekend it will get nice and then it will be game on! We also caught a legal gag grouper as well as a nurse shark. Great fun on an islamorada tarpon charter!
