10/22/14 Great Cape Sable October Tarpon Fishing

Snuck out today we’ve had nasty weather the last couple days and looks to be here through Friday.  Yesterday we got chased home from the rain we caught a few sharks and a cobia, did not see any tarpon.  But today was much better.  We had bait leftover from yesterday.  We started the morning with some snook and snapper action.  About 11:00 we made our way out towards east cape sable.  We set up and tarpon began rolling everywhere and saw several free jumpers.  Pretty soon we were getting bit up!  We caught 5 out of 12 bites all in about 2 hours, pretty amazing fishing that is about as good as it gets.  Most fish were in the 20-40 lb range but we did land one that was about 60.  We headed home after that and only got rained on for about 20 minutes, well worth the price of admission for a day like this!  The rest of October looks to be good fishing the rainy overcast weather definitely doesn’t hurt that.
