Well been getting back to tarpon fishing now that the last cold front had been over. The last few nights had been a little tough, we went 0/3 last night losing a fish in the bridge and not getting tight on the 2 before that, but that is tarpon fishing in islamorada for you. Today we made up for it though we went 4/4 in the backcountry everglades tarpon fishing this morning by 10 am. This evening we did an evening tarpon fishing charter and went 4/9 which is great fishing. All fish on live fresh caught mullet this morning! 8/13 in a day, woo hoo! The wind is suppose to crank tomorrow and blow 30+ mph so may not be good fishing for a few days, plus the temperature will dip slightly but not too cold. We may try dead baiting a bit around the channels as there won’t be many other options, but that is a good one for a day like that!
