7/14/15 Mid July Flamingo Tarpon Fishing

More tarpon action today we fished a 3/4 day and got out early.  Had bait from yesterday and we hit some backcountry channels around flamingo.  Took a little bit but eventually hooked up a nice 50 lb tarpon we landed.  Also later on we got a hammerhead shark.  After the tide quit we ran and tried off the beach area though first we caught a couple dozen more mullet out of a mud real quick.  At the next stop we got a few nice big snook of 15 lbs or so, a cobia, and a few more sharks.  All in all a fabulous day.  We saw some tarpon starting to roll when we left though they didn’t seem real happy.  We had a steady 15 mph southwest breeze.  Anyways day off tomorrow and then the same folks again on Thursday.  1 for 1
