5/17/15 May Islamorada Tarpon Fishing

Today we went into the backcountry in the morning.  Bait was tough in the AM.  We decided to run back there to get some more action anyways with a shot at hopefully getting a tarpon.  Sharks were good they kept us busy throughout the day.  Didn’t see much for tarpon back there.  Anyways we came back around town in the afternoon.  Lots of boat traffic, jet skis – ugh…  Though we did manage to jump a tarpon, unfortunately we didnt’ get the hook in him good.  He took off and didn’t jump right away, the perfect kind of bite, though we got the bait back and all.  Oh well at least we had our shot!  0 for 1
