8/22/15 August Islamorada Tarpon Fishing Report

Went out with friends and family today for a few hours.  Mullet were thick we netted a bunch and stockpiled some for the next couple of days.  Tomorrow is just a half day so may not be tarpon fishing but we will see.  Anyways had incoming tide all morning back around flamingo.  Found some fish in the channel they were in the last couple days.  We got in the action pretty quick and  caught a couple nice ones, one of 40 lbs or so, and another about 90 lbs.  The 90 was definitely a big fish to see this time of year!  After that we jumped one more off about 45 minutes later as the tide started to slow.  We checked out off the beach to the west after that with the start of the falling tide, though did not see much for tarpon we only fished for 30 minutes or so.  Caught a couple sharks and a big jack and called it a day!  2 for 3
