4/9/12 Good backcountry tarpon fishing

Today the fishing was much better than yesterday for the big backcountry tarpon fishing charters.  We ran back into the everglades where we had hooked a fish yesterday.  Very early the end of the falling tide was fishable – none of the red nasty weed that was balling up yesterday all over every bait making it unfishable.  We caught 2 out of 4 big tarpon, plus a few other sharks and such.  The everglades tarpon fishing should hopefully continue to be good through the week, however the falling water and first of the incoming tide are a must with the nasty, red weed that is coming in from the gulf.  These bad boys all ate dead mullet on the bottom.
