3/20/13 Nice tarpon in the backcountry

Had some tarpon action today along with plenty of other things including black tip sharks, trout, ladyfish, jacks, and lots of nice tripetail including some nice big ones.  We caught this one on a dead mullet on the bottom which we caught fresh earlier in the morning.  Saw lots of these tarpon rolling in the channels where we were fishing, and got the bite about 10 minutes after setting up, though after that they seemed to quite down did not seem them much after that.  Oh well!  I think the tarpon should be getting thicker and thicker in the usual spring time spots, today felt like spring and was nice and flat calm.  The tarpon fishing should get more consistent with that!
