8/15/13 Tarpon report mid august islamorada

Well business is slowing down not getting out every day but it is still kicking along.  Actually a lot of last minute stuff is happening.  Being the weather is so hot and that time of year we are doing a lot of half days in the morning.  Today we got out on a full though and were able to nail the mullet.  Tried fishing a few channels with no luck on the tarpon.  They can be really hit or miss right now, though yesterday I heard someone caught 3 in the same channels we tried fishing.  Later we tried a spot off the mainland and hooked a nice fish almost instantly.  Caught him a fish of 75 lbs or so, but no other bites though we did get plenty of big goliath grouper and sharks.
