4/1/18 April Tarpon Fishing in Islamorada

Tarpon fishing was pretty epic today as I figured it would be.  I had Tom, Michelle, and their son Noah out for the full day.  We had bait already packed away and headed out around 6:45.  We found a ton of tarpon that had moved in to some of the channels.  It was non stop action everybody caught a couple tarpon plus a few sharks!  This was all by 10:45 too in just under 3 hours of fishing!  After the tide quit it slowed up a little and the family wanted to do some other stuff.  So we finished the day catching some trout on popping corks with artificials.  Banner day for tarpon fishing in April in Islamorada, what a way to start the month!  The rest of the week looks to be similar conditions, and right on through the weekend actually.  I think it’ll stay good for a while until this group of fish moves out to spawn.  But overall I think it’s going to be a great year!  6 for 6
