6/22/15 More great june everglades tarpon fishing

We had another stellar day today in the everglades backcountry of islamorada tarpon fishing.  Bait was a little tougher today had to throw quite a few times and just pick at them a few at a time.  But we got what we needed and I had some leftovers from yesterday.  Luckily my anglers showed up extra early so that helped since bait was more difficult!  We ran out where we found tarpon yesterday and had the last bit of incoming tide.  We had shark activity right away and soon after a nice 40 lb tarpon.  We landed him, he fought well though was foul hooked which explained why.  After that we set back up and the tide was just slacking and we jumped another fish of about the same size.  Once the tide started falling again we had a couple more tarpon bites and landed both those fish, both in the same size range, plus several more sharks including some big blacktips.  After that the wind picked up and things seemed to kind of shut down so we tried some other stuff.  Finished our day with a few trout and snapper, and about half a dozen snook.  3 for 4
