5/30/13 End of may tarpon fishing in the florida keys

Well we have had a lot of rain the last few days so I haven’t gotten out much.  A couple days ago we did stick locally and didn’t get rained on too much.  Ended up catching 1 nice big tarpon which we fought a while on a dead mullet.  Tonight is the first trip i’ve had since then and we got 2 80 lb tarpon again on dead bait.  Not much was going on with the livies nor on the crabs, though we had rain this morning and a nice late afternoon/evening until around 7:15 when the big rain rolled in.  We decided to pack it in at this point having caught 2 fish already.  Looks like the rain will start to clear somewhat tomorrow and much lighter winds too, hooray!  Looking forward to some june islamorada fishing for tarpon.
