8/7/13 August backcountry tarpon fishing in Islamorada

Well some bad news my motor blew up a couple days ago on a charter.  Had to get towed in though luckily warranty is covering everything and it’s in the shop now.  I’ll probably be trading mine in and upgrading to a 200 hp yamaha 4 stroke so that will be nice.  Today a friend let me borrow his boat for my charter since he wasn’t fishing.  We had an excellent day with a lot of different fish including 2 big tarpon off the cape sable area.  There were a lot of tarpon out there and lots of rollers and free jumpers… august can be great fishing out there.  Mullet were easy on the low water around 10 AM hopefully they’ll be there tomorrow too as I’m booked again.
