6/26/13 Islamorada night tarpon fishing in June

Got out for an evening trip tonight.  We caught some fresh mullet this morning in the backcountry while doing a regular rod bending half day.  Went out around 3:15 this afternoon and fished the local channels and bridges.  Caught 2 out of 3 tarpon, smaller guys in the 40-60 lb range, but lots of fun!  Fishing our fresh mullets was good.  We also caught a 300 lb ‘mud marlin’ which was pretty cool to see as he swam way up on a flat.  Going again tomorrow night I’ve heard the crab bite has been good in some areas so may try that too!  Great falling tides from late afternoon into the dark the next few days, should be good fishing!
