4/12/14 April Florida Keys Tarpon Fishing Report

Had a full day today and went backcountry tarpon fishing in the everglades.  We had some baits from the night before and a few other older ones on good ice.  We saw a few fish rolling as soon as we got back in the channels.  Hooked up one fairly quick a nice 90 lb fish.  The tide changed whilst fighting him and we came back to the area.  We hooked another one after a little while, catching a couple sharks in between.  A smaller fish that was very acrobatic!  After that no more tarpon action and from what I heard it was fairly slow for most everyone else today, both in the backcountry and around islamorada.  So we were very happy to catch two!  Another full day tomorrow and probably more of the same!
