5/6/14 Backcountry Florida Keys Tarpon Fishing

Today I had some brits over for some tarpon and shark fishing.  They were keen to catch both.  So we went into the backcountry where the sharks are generally more plentiful and tarpon fishing can be very good.  The numbers of tarpon seemed to be slim, it layed out nice and calm nearing mid day, but I only saw a handful roll the whole time.  We had a couple tarpon bites and caught 1.  But we did catch over a dozen sharks and a nice red grouper.  So we had action consistently throughout the day.  Lots of fun!
