5/14/14 Great Islamorada morning tarpon fishing

Had a group again today.  Winds howling 25-30 mph!  Some rain around but we didn’t get wet.  We tarpon fished in the AM.  Slow start, lots of boats hitting one of the ‘dead bait’ areas i like.  Nobody hooking up so we left after an hour.  Found em good in another channel and had bites right away on live bait.  Missed our first shot then hooked one immediately after and caught it.  Large 100 lb fish.  Then we went back and after 15 mins hooked another 60 lber that we caught.  After that my guys had enough and we bent the small rods for a while catching dinner.  2 outta 3 in an hour fishing that spot – not bad!  We tried in the afternoon for the last hour of the day but not bites and did not really see any fish.
