3/21/15 Half day islamorada tarpon fishing report march

Hung around town today tarpon fishing as I just had a 3/4 day we ended up cutting to a half day.  We caught a few live baits this morning they weren’t easy but enough to get by.  Fished down by channel 2 bridge and found quite a few fish in the bay.  We had the start of the incoming tide and flat calm.  At first it was a little weedy but it cleared up.  We got the fish going OK it took a little work and moving around but we got lined up and they started getting happy.  Quite a few ‘cheap shots’ on the live mullets plus only had a few decent size ones, the rest were very large baits too big for the tarpon to eat almost.  But we hooked and caught a couple and had another 4 solid bites, plus several other cheap shots and busts.  Good fishing for a half day close to home!  2 for 6
