8/3/13 August tarpon fishing east cape sable

Went out for fun today with Elizabeth Baxter tarpon fishing.  We nailed some mullets in the morning and tried a few spots.  Mostly sharks to start with plus a few groupers.  Though we checked an area off east cape sable.  The water looked gorgeous and there was some fish there.  We hooked this fine 75 lb specimen on a dead mullet.  He almost jumped in the boat at one point and hit our bow and flopped off!  We landed him thankfully!  Tarpon fishing can still be very good through August and even into September.
