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.
