Had Lyle and his son Hunter today down from the cold north. I got ‘no showed’ yesterday which was a bummer and I heard the fishing was good especially for tarpon. But anyways it allowed me time to go load up on bait for my next couple trips. Today we left out a little early at 6:30 with some fresh mullet. We set up in the nearby channels and soon had action. Caught a couple nice tarpon 60 and 85 lbs off the bottom baits. Also had one other fish we missed that was most likely a tarpon but didn’t get a very good look at him, he made a hard boil/bust on a live mullet but missed him. Anyways great start to the day, finished up with smaller stuff for action, and several sharks in the backcountry including a nice hammerhead!
