6/9/14 June Florida Keys Tarpon Fishing Report

Fished a full day today.  We ran in the backcountry and did some light tackle stuff early on.  I had a load of mullet we caught first thing this morning.  We tried some of the channels back there, not much for tarpon going on but some shark action.  Around noon we made our way back near town here and found a hungry school of tarpon.  We had 4 or so bites and another half dozen cheap shots before finally hooking into a nice fish.  We fought him over an hour, my young angler did a great job hooking and fighting the fish through the bridge.  After we got back set up the tide had pretty much quit and it was all over, but definitely hit it at the right time and worked hard for a nice tarpon.
