5/30/19 May Backcountry Tarpon Fishing in the Everglades

Lots of fun with Tom and Tommy today! We chased tarpon early on, found a good handful in some channels. Had to work at it but we managed to fool a couple and both of them caught one! Nothing huge but a 25 and 40 lber. Also got a big lemon shark. After that the tide quit and we decided to keep moving. Tried an area where we found some redfish yesterday, but today they weren’t home. We did see some big bait schools so we trolled in there and did catch a half dozen trout, including a couple Whoppers for Tom Sr. After that we ran further in the Backcountry. Had to work at it and move around a lot but we got into some decent snook, catching maybe 10 or so. Also about a half dozen redfish. So both the boys slammed out! It was fun and one of those days where we weren’t crushing ’em but putting in the work paid off. Makes you appreciate them more! Off for a couple days and the I’ll be back at it Sunday!  2 for 2
