7/19/13 Tarpon fishing flamingo in july

Well had a half day today.  Made the run back to flamingo which we don’t usually do on a half day, but I already had bait and fish were there yesterday so we went for it.  Caught the last of the falling tide.  Had a couple shark bites we missed/bit us off, and then a nice 80 lb tarpon slammed a bait.  Nice aerial show and some greyhounding action.   A 14 year old and his brother took turns on him and landed the beast.  We went back to the spot and tide was now coming in, caught a couple lemon sharks and a blacktip, and had another bite we missed and that was the end of the morning.
