8/12/15 Florida Keys Tarpon Fishing in August

Had Michael and Steven out again from yesterday.  Today they wanted to try for some snook so tarpon wasn’t really on the game plan.   But that didn’t stop us from catching one!  We were chumming some bait in one of the channels and saw some tarpon rolling along the edge nearby.  I had some bait leftover from yesterday and we put a couple out while we continued to chum and catch bait.  Soon Michael had a nice 50 lb fish hooked up!  Fishing lesson #1 – Always be prepared!   After that we had a good day catching the boys their first snook among several others, and some nice mangrove snappers for dinner!  1 for 1
