6/3/14 June Tarpon Fishing Islamorada

Another overcast/rainy type day.  We didn’t get too wet though just a light drizzle.  We left early again and got a nice 60 lb tarpon right away.  After that though things slowed down for us.  We had a couple other bites that seemed like tarpon – some very hard drag pulling for 3 seconds and then dropped the baits.  Several other boats came into the area today and seemed like everyone got a bite or two.  So the fish were pretty spread out.  Anyways that was about it for the morning we also did get a big nurse shark.  I heard the live bait bite was good down the road and we stocked up on some fresh dead this afternoon, may give that a try tomorrow to do something different!
