7/7/14 July Islamorada Night Tarpon Fishing and everglades day report

Well had a morning half and an evening half today.  Likely one of my last evening charters as I’ve had a very busy season and still fishing most days so I’m happy.  Though I may open a few evenings when conditions look good if people are still interested in going so definitely check with me.  I can always point you to other good tarpon guides if I’m not available!  Anyways we had 1 tarpon bite this morning back in the everglades that we caught, a 50 lb fish on a light rod.  Good fight.  We also caught plenty of sharks including lemons, blacktips, and a nice hammerhead.  Mullet were a little tougher though I did get lucky and made 1 throw and caught about 2 dozen.  This evening we fished locally around islamorada.  Incoming tide just about until dark.  I didn’t have real high hopes but fishing was great.  We caught 3 out of 5 tarpon in the 65 – 100 lb range!  We also got a couple sharks and a couple of ‘mud marlin’.  Great fishing for this time of year!  July tarpon fishing in Islamorada can still be very productive, it’s a matter of being at the right place at the right time!
