6/12/13 June evening tarpon fishing in Islamorada

Well the tarpon bite has been a little slow in the day time in the backcountry though a few fish were caught around town the last couple days.  We got out this evening and had some mullets and crabs for bait.  The mullet fishing has been pretty good and I even have some penned up for tomorrows trip.  We had a lot of rain and lightning around this evening though we still managed to catch 1 out of 2 tarpon on live mullets.  Tried drifting with crabs  near sunset though no luck but did see one other boat hook one.  We were glad to get the shots we had and a fish to the boat though because they didnt seem too happy with the rain and lightning around.  The june florida keys tarpon fishing should stay good in the evenings and we have falling tide so a late night trip may be a good option.  We are going at 5:15 in the morning to catch the last of the morning tide and then fish our mullets when it gets sunny out.
