6/5/15 June Tarpon Fishing in the Everglades

Fishing continues to be hot.  We ran back into the everglades this morning.  A bit of an ominous looking start with the weather but things cleared up and it stayed nice and overcast.  Winds were south to start but laid out flat for most of the day.  We were able to catch some mullet around some backcountry areas pretty good which was nice.  They’d been hard to come by.  We found some fish off the beaches and they were very happy.  Not rolling to much but you’d see one every once in a while.  We got lined up on them and the action was hot and heavy.  We caught 5 out of 5 which was very good especially for smaller sized fish in the 30 to 60 lb range!  Several sharks as well.  By mid day the tide slacked and things slowed down, a few more sharks.  Then we jumped 1 more tarpon when the tide turned and started coming in.  The tarpon started showing very good then, but did not want to feed really well.  Anyways another fantastic day.  Half day tomorrow going to try and leave early and stay fairly close.  5 for 6
