3/9/15 Tarpon Fishing Islamorada in March

Had Mike and his daughter Catherine out for a full day today.  Fishing was a little tough the water got chilly after the high winds and rain yesterday.  Seems to have made everything not want to bite great.  We fished hard for a coupe hours in the backcountry channels.  Saw a few fish roll.  Finally hooked up a nice 80 lb tarpon that father and daughter got to land together.  We had a couple black tips as well.  After that we went back around town in Islamorada.  We found a few fish in one of the channels, and had a couple ‘cheap shots’ where they flashed the baits but turned away from eating them at the last second.  Though we did catch some big 10-15 lb jack crevelles and a couple big nurse sharks which was fun and kept us busy for the last hour and a half.  1 for 1.
