6/20/14 June Backcountry Tarpon Report

Well tried to mess with the tarpon this morning in the backcountry.  We caught some mullet early and ran a bit to some further channels that had supposedly been good the last few days.  We did not see much, we did hook 1 tarpon we lost pretty quickly.  Though we had a great day after that catching a couple big sawfish, goliath groupers, and plenty of snook, redfish, trout, snapper, and sharks.  Tomorrow I’m doing the snook and redfish thing probably not tarpon fishing.  We did fish last night and it was tough, weak incoming tide with clear water, we had 1 bite we missed, and then when the tide turned and things looked good the rain came and chased us in.
