8/3/14 August Everglades Tarpon Fishing

Conditions changed today and so did the fishing.  We had lots of rain and weather around this morning but we managed to sneak through it without getting wet.  Caught mullet first thing and ran out off the everglades mainland cape sable area.  Set up where I’d been catching fish but not much luck in the morning, just a couple sharks and small goliath grouper.  Tried some channels further towards flamingo tarpon fishing in august.  No luck there, so we ran back off the cape to catch the start of the falling tide.  We hooked two fish though both got away unfortunately and we caught a few more sharks.  Things can change in a hurry but we did get on the fish they just wouldn’t cooperate and stay on the hook for us today.
