5/14/13 May cold front slows tarpon down but still success!

Well we had a mild cold front hit us, not that it got very cold but chilly north/northeast wind today.  The tarpon really dont like the northerly winds as it is a winter time wind and usually cold.  We were successful in finding some that were willing to eat though around some of the local bridges.  We caught one smaller fish of 35 lbs and jumped another one off. Had a couple other ‘cheap shots’ too so although not red hot it was still good action especially given the conditions of 15-20 MPH north winds in the morning, then northeast more towards the afternoon.  We were able to catch some bait early and there were some big massive schools of mullet around later in the morning too which is good to see.
