We ran down more towards marathon last night to tarpon fish. The day before fishing was good down that way. Locally the fishing has been tough lately in islamorada. Yesterday morning I snapper fished around the bridges which was good, nice big snappers and other variety. But I only saw one tarpon roll while doing that, and saw about 10 boats down there and not even a single hookup. So it’s been more productive to run south. So we did last night but fishing was tough down there too. We had a couple cheap shots and finally hooked a nice fish, but my angler made the mistake of jerking back while he jumped and he was gone quickly. Never jerk back or keep the rod high when a tarpon jumps, once the hook is set always bow to the king when he jumps. Alas that was our only shot at a fish down there, we had one more solid bite up near islamorada making a last drift at the end of the evening, but we missed him too just didn’t get the hook set. Not our night.
