6/13/14 June Tarpon Fishing in Flamingo

Well we ran off east cape sable today west of flamingo.  We started the day with some rod bending action – trout, snapper, jacks, etc…  It was tough to get any bait, not much for mullet around though I had some from the day before.  And ladyfish were slim to come by even too!  But we set up off the beach in a deeper area and we caught a big shark, a nice cobia, and this gorgeous 50 lb tarpon.  My anglers were thrilled they had never salt water chartered before.  Very nice people the type you’d love to have as customers every day!  Congrats Heather on your first tarpon.  We tried around locally in Islamorada for the last hour of the day, did not see any tarpon with the hard falling tide that looked good, but we did see some permit but they did not bite for us.
