5/26/14 + 5/27/14 Tarpon Fishing Report

Went into the backcountry the last couple days.  We had a mixed bag of action each day.  We did a little tarpon fishing in the mornings back there.  Found a few schools of fish in some of the channels near flamingo.  They weren’t very active but we did get a bite out of them each morning, unfortunately though they both came off the hooks.  Plenty of action with sharks in the other channels though and as I said good mixed bag of action with other species such as trout, snook, snapper, and more.  I heard some tarpon bit around town here in Islamorada this afternoon on the falling tide, may be focusing more on the tarpon again if they are getting a little more active after the lull we’ve had!
