1/3/15 More florida keys tarpon fishing in january

Being warm this January there have still been tarpon around.  Tried the tarpon again today.  We had some bait still leftover from yesterday.  Ran to the backcountry channels and had a little bit of falling tide left, but not much.  Didn’t do too much early, once the tide changed and started rolling in things looked better.  We had a hard southeast wind blowing against the tide, making fishing a little trickier.  Lots of shark bites, but we did put two tarpon in the air, unfortunately the hooks did not stay in them.  Oh well may try again tomorrow as with the warm weather and southeasterly breezes, it’s overall good action to get into!  0 for 2.
