10/21/13 East Cape Sable Tarpon Fishing Report

Well we got out today and had a lot of fun.  We had plenty of mullet from the previous day iced down nicely and a load of pilchards.  We had some good snook action in the morning on pilchards.  We then found lots of busting and free jumping tarpon offshore in the east cape sable area.  The end of the falling tide seemed to have them very active.  We set up and shortly after had about 3 fish in the air within an hour.  Unfortunately we did not get the hook set good enough in any of them, though we did land plenty of other fish including sharks, cobia, and grouper.  The fall mullet run is occurring so tarpon fishing can still be good, I am fishing all this week and then going out of town.
