7/20/18 Everglades Tarpon Fishing Charter in July

Got out for Day 2 with Zack and his son Jacob.  We started with the same game plan as yesterday.  Found some bait early and got to fishing nearby there.  Not quite as many fish today they seemed to thin out somewhat, but still some definitely.  We got one right away and then sharks a plenty.  We made a move and not much, then further down we got in front of some good packs of fish that were rolling heavily.  We hooked a double header that we landed and then Jacob got a single nice 70 lb fish.  After that we moved again and Zack jumped a fish and then Jacob got another roughly the same size 75 lbs or so.  After that a buddy of mine came in and we decided to go look in some other spots.  We got a big goliath grouper on our light tackle which was cool, then saw a few tarpon in another area and jumped 1 and the sharks got u.  But Zack got a big lemon shark which was cool.  Then we got a cobia and a few more sharks on another spot and called it a day.  Still a banner day though after the last few days it feels kinda slow – guess I’ve been spoiled!  Back at it tomorrow hopefully it stays just as good really.  5 for 7
