8/15/14 East Cape Tarpon Fishing in August

Back at it again today.  I had some bait from yesterday so we got a later 7 AM start.  Ran into the backcountry off east cape sable.  Tarpon were there and fishing was good.  We had good falling tide all morning and light southwest winds.  Lots of action with blacktip sharks.  And we went 2 for 2 on tarpon, one 30 lber and another 50-60 lber.  The august tarpon fishing in islamorada is good and fishing has been consistent as you can see.  It’s very nice I am often the only boat out there and have it all to myself!  But I don’t have any more charters booked and and am going out of town tuesday for a couple weeks then getting married on the 30th.  I may end up going over the weekend but otherwise you may not hear from me for a little bit.  If your looking to go tarpon fishing and I’m unavailable I can recommend some great guides who are so just drop me a line!
