7/24/13 Tarpon are still biting good! (at certain times!)

Young nate the great (10 years old) and his dad were with me today.  We fished a 3/4 day.  We caught mullet first thing on the way to the backcountry.  The channels were holding heavy with smaller tarpon again.  Many jump-offs but we did nail a few.  Nate caught a 10 lber and then at the end caught a 70 lber!  We caught those 2 fish out of about 6 bites, it was all over by 10:00.  Way to go!  We also had plenty of sharks and finished the day with about 15 snook.  The ticket lately has been fishing early morning falling tide, it is good until 10 or so, and then the afternoon incoming tide has been good too.  Of course this will change a little every day!
