7/11/14 July Islamorada Tarpon Action in the Everglades

Got out there early again today.  Caught bait in the backcountry and went to the channels I’d fished yesterday.  It was good, second bait in the water was eaten almost instantly!  A nice tarpon of about 75 lbs.  We had some other shark action, a big barracuda, and a big bull shark.  Then we landed another tarpon of about 55 lbs.  So 2 for 2 on the morning and then we went and tried some other stuff the rest of the day.  July islamorada tarpon fishing has been consistent in the everglades.  It is one of my favorite times of year to fish because you really have it almost all to yourself (all month I think there has maybe been only one or two other boats tarpon fishing within a few miles of us in the mornings).  Also the bait is really consistent and easy to catch making for good fishing.  Back at it tomorrow I have bait saved from today so will have lines in very early!
