5/10/29 May Everglades Tarpon Fishing

Got out with Matt and his sons Aiden and Zack who have fished with me several times of the last few years.  It was Aidens birthday.  First day in the new Contender boat which is in service now!  It proved to be good luck – we found a good group of tarpon to start the day and caught three in the first hour plus a nice tripletail for dinner!  After that we jumped one more and the tide quit.  We tried some other stuff, and caught a redfish and a few jacks and other things.  Then came back to the tarpon grounds for a bit and jumped three more just couldn’t get them to stay on the hook.  Headed in a little early as the boys were getting hot.  But still good action and a great day on the new boat, broke her in right!  I’m off tomorrow, then back at it for the week on Sunday.  3 for 7
