6/21/13 Summer time tarpon fishing florida keys

Well today the june florida keys fishing tarpon was a little tough.  We had some mullet still fairly lively we caught yesterday while fun fishing and a few other dead baits.  So we headed back towards the everglades for some flamingo tarpon fishing.  However we fished a few different places and saw no fish rolling nor had any bites aside from a few sharks.  We caught a few small fish to bend the rod and to save for bait, and even ran and tried off east cape but alas no tarpon to be had in the backcountry.  We did catch some bigger things and then some more mullet on the way back towards islamorada. We gave it one last shot around downtown islamorada and ended up getting a nice 110 lb tarpon to end the day plus a big ‘mud marlin’ at the same time – double header!  Great way to end our trip sometimes it pays off to work hard all day for them.
