6/23/13 June Islamorada Tarpon Fishing Report

We fished today and had to dodge rainstorms for quite a while.  We did a variety of things which worked out well in the backcountry, got some stuff for dinner, then my clients wants to catch a tarpon.  We found some mullet way in the back mudding on a flat, a couple throws of the cast net and had about 15 or so.  We tried a few spots in the backcountry but did not see much for tarpon.  Ran back near Islamorada and fished a spot with the falling tide I’ve been having some luck at.  It proved the right move again, my angler landed her first tarpon about a 60 lb fish, then we went home before more rain came!
