7/6/14 July Tarpon Fishing in Islamorada

Well today was a little slower then yesterday.  We did catch 1 tarpon in the morning though we fished for a little over an hour before we had a ‘for sure’ tarpon bite.  Got him though.  Lots of sharks too.  After that we did some stuff with the light rods – big mangrove snappers and a few trout.  Then we tried tarpon again in the afternoon.  Caught a few more sharks including a big 200+ lb bull shark.  Jumped one other tarpon off unfortunately that one did not stick.  But 1 for 2 on the day, fishing is consistent for tarpon in July here in Islamorada.
