3/19/15 Everglades Tarpon Fishing Report March

Tough fishing for us today for the tarpon.  We were able to load up on bait early in the AM.  We ran into the backcountry where we’d been having good luck the last few days.  Today unfortunately the ‘red weed’ that has been plauging us off and on was everywhere – making it totally unfishable for our style of fishing.  The last few days there has at least been a window where it was not so bad and you could get your fishing in.  So we left there and ran back further towards the mainland.  We found plenty of fish free jumping and busting off the beaches.  We jumped 1 tarpon and then the sharks started to eat us alive.  Anyways we caught plenty of them, then had some good tripletail fishing, and finished up around town trying for a tarpon though no luck there but we did get a big jack crevelle and had a possible tarpon bite but not sure what it was.  0 for 1
