7/9/13 Tarpon Fishing Flamingo in July

Well we dodged plenty of showers today but the fishing was well worth it.  We caught limit of trout and snappers for dinner early on for rod bending action.  We then looked around for a bit and found a lot of mullet coming off the flats near flamingo.  Plenty of smaller size mullet but perfect for the size tarpon we’ve been finding in the backcountry.  We fished one of the channels back there and it was loaded up with tarpon.  We caught 4 out of 7 in about 2 hours, plenty of smaller 30-50 lb fish though we did end with a 90 lber.  Can’t beat that!  The ladies did well today.
