5/28/15 Tarpon Fishing Islamorada Late May Florida Keys

Well more tarpon fishing again today we departed early and got out before daylight.  Went 2 for 2 on big poons, one of 75 lbs and another about 100 lbs.  Got some good shots of the 100 lber jumping and did a face grab for Byron.  It’s been tough for me getting pictures lately in the mornings, with the low light my phone camera doesn’t work so good!  Anyways great way to start our day we then went in the backcountry and got some snapper, trout, jack, etc… then caught and lost a few snook – sharks were bad trying to eat them!  Last night I also fished and we only had 1 tarpon bite, but we caught it.  Another good big fish of about 100 lbs.  I have the next two days off so likely going to relax though may take my brother-in-law out to catch a tarpon and may try to stock up on bait as it’s been very tough lately to get mullet.  1 for 1 and 2 for 2
