4/25/18 Tarpon Fishing Islamorada Late April

Got out with Doug and Allen today for their last morning with me.  We fished last night and had good fishing on my only night trip of the year.  Winds were steady out of the north and a bit chilly but not real cold.  I thought the fishing would be a bit better then it was.  We didn’t do much early on and took a while to find some live bait.  We did finally get some and then set up and as we were trolling around the bridge we had a big fish destroy a mullet!  It was a commotion  getting through the bridge but we did and landed the fish in spectacular fashion!  A nice 90 lber or so.  It was good we got it boatside for pictures as the fish last night didn’t cooperate for that.  Didn’t do much after that and only saw one other fish caught.  Back to my full day routine tomorrow and possibly going to head out into the backcountry depending what the winds do, heard some fish had moved into some areas back there.  Would love to get away from the crowds again!  1 for 1
