8/10/14 Cape Sable Tarpon Fishing in August

Today we were fishing off east cape sable out west of flamingo in everglades national park.  Caught the mullet this morning and set up.  Couple hours of falling tide left.  Not red hot action but we got a couple goliath groupers and then hooked into a nice 50 lb tarpon that we landed after 20 minutes.  After that we bent the light rods and got some dinner, and had action with other sharks and a cobia to finish the day.  August tarpon fishing in islamorada is still possible, getting out early is always helpful!  My departures are typically 6 AM in the summer time.
