Well after a nice break from Islamorada we got back in the tarpon game today. Today we caught 1 tarpon early on, several blacktip sharks and a couple lemon sharks, and some smaller stuff. Mullet were easy in the backcountry, though lots of rain/thunder around. We stayed out of the bad stuff for the most part which was nice. Many of the backcountry tarpon seem to have split I didn’t fish yesterday but did the couple days before that. One day we fished 4 different spots and never saw a tarpon, though caught plenty of other stuff. The day after we had lots of rain again but managed to catch some snappers for dinner, and did hook a couple tarpon near home though we lost them before heading in on our half day trip. That day we had one eat a live crab that we casted too which was pretty cool to watch. Anyways looks like I got fairly booked up for the rest of the month, though may have a day or two available as well as possible evenings here and there. If you don’t mind getting sprinkled on, let’s go fishing!
