4/20/14 Post Cold Front April Tarpon Fishing Islamorada

Well the temperature dipped again last night down in the 60s but the water is still warm and tarpon are still here.  We did not have ideal conditions this morning with a westerly stiff breeze that swung more northwest/north later in the morning.  A chill was in the air.  We were able to catch a couple tarpon though and make for a nice morning.  After the first couple fish in the first 2 hours though things slowed down we did not have much other action.  But 2 tarpon on a half day trip is always a good thing!  I heard the fish bit a little later in the afternoon it got really pretty and sunny out and the wind laid down a little bit.  Bait was difficult in the morning but this afternoon we went and found some big balls of them and loaded up for a few days.  Looks like tonight it is going to dip down to the mid 60s again, so we will see what happens tomorrow.  North winds they are calling for.  Overall it should be a good thing it may slow the fish down a little which may mean a little better fishing later in the season.  Happy easter everyone!
