6/1/14 June islamorada tarpon fishing report

Fished around town today for the tarpon.  We caught bait good early this morning.  Had weak tides to start I tried a local channel with the last wee bit of falling tide but did not see any fish.  We ran down the road and check a few spots – very weedy.  At the bridges finally the tide started rolling and we saw some fish.  Had a couple bites and few cheap shots in about a 30 minute window, and then the weed got horrendous and made it almost unfishable.  We ran back near home and set up with the dead baits and got a nice 65 lb on the bottom.  Went and bent the small rods with some snapper and such to finish the day.  Departing early tomorrow morning so we’ll have a couple hours of falling tide to fish.  You can see how bad the weed was while we were fighting this fish!
