11/8/19 November Tarpon Fishing in Islamorada

Got out filming today for the Bud n Marys show on YouTube!  We did a variety of things, but did run into a nice school of tarpon early on.  Drifted in and cast a few pinfish to them and they ate happily!  I landed a nice 30 lb fish, and our friend Vic had a bite too but we slurped it right off of there.  After that we left them alone but it was cool to see!  Looks like we have some cold weather coming in the next week, will probably shut the tarpon off a bit.  Sometimes some little ones eat shrimp here and there, but overall targeting tarpon is probably not going to be a regular thing from now through January.  But of course we’ll catch some random ones here and there, and if the weather gets right it might be worthwhile.  1 for 2
