8/2/14 August Florida Keys Tarpon Fishing Report Everglades

More great fishing.  Left out early and caught mullet first thing.  We hit the same spot as yesterday, though got their bright and early lines in the water by 7:30.  Last of the incoming tide.  Right away we had a double header tarpon, lost one but caught the other.  Then another tarpon.  Then some small sharks.  Tide quit and changed direction and the big snook started biting, we caught 3 of them.  We caught 4 goliath grouper, some bigger blacktip sharks, then the tarpon started biting again.  We caught 3 out of 4 more tarpon.  So 5 for 7 tarpon on the day plus plenty of other big cool stuff.  Fishing doesn’t get any better than that in august fishing islamorada in the everglades.  We were back home by noon.  None of the tarpon were very picture cooperative, but I did get one good jump shot.
