3/7/15 Islamorada Tarpon Fishing Guide Report

More tarpon action today we ran into the everglades this morning.  Tides are weird they seem to be stopping roughly the same time the last few days.  Must still be weird phase we are on.  Anyways we had a northeast breezy wind.  Caught mullets good first thing this AM.  We fished the channels and had some shark action right away.  Caught a big nurse, some big blacktips, and jumped a couple tarpon off – couldn’t get ’em to stick.  We also caught a cobia.  We tried catching some more bait in some muds on the flat, not much luck.  We tried another channel and hooked a big blacktip shark we caught.  Saw a few tarpon roll and a boat near us hooked up one.  I decided to run back towards Islamorada to give it a try.  Came across more bait on the way and were able to get a few more.  We put them out close to home and within 20 minutes we hooked a nice 110 lb tarpon.  Hard fighting fish, some very spectacular jumps.  Great way to end the day!  1 for 3
