6/16/14 Tarpon Fishing June Florida Keys

Fished in the backcountry today.  I had yesterday off and the day before that we did not tarpon fish but had a fun day doing other stuff.  Today we got some mullets early on, with the last of the incoming tide one of my good spots in the backcountry had some bait.  We then did some light tackle fishing which was very good.  The rain chased us around a bit, but we fished one of the channels back in the flamingo neighborhood around noon time.  Had 3 tarpon bites, and got one to the boat on the leader but we pulled the hook on him.  Smaller fish in the 30-40 lb range, but good to see them they usually start stacking up this time of year back there and if you hit it right, it can be great fishing.
