4/27/15 Everglades Tarpon Fishing in late April

Went back into the everglades today my customers wanted to fish back there instead around the bridges and local areas.  It was a slow start we did have some shark action including a little baby hammerhead though tarpon were not to be found.  We tried 3 different spots and never saw the first one.  The water actually was fairly pretty with a nice incoming tide and a light west wind behind it.  Perhaps the strange westerly wind combined with the heat had pushed them out of those areas.  Anyways we ran to one last place in the afternoon and we found them finally.  We managed to go 3 for 3 on nice tarpon, one 35 lber and the other two were 80 lbs.  Great way to finish the day and I have the same guys tomorrow so we’ll likely be back there again.  3 for 3
