4/4/16 April Tarpon Fishing in Islamorada

Had a full day today but we ended up cutting it short due to weather.  We caught a nice tarpon first thing this morning in the channels with the last of the incoming tide.  Saw a few more fish but no other bites.  My live bait was delivered soon after and we went and looked at a few more spots as the tide was quitting but not much life.  We did some light tackle stuff for a little while then caught the start of the falling tide down around another bridge area.  The tarpon were thick and we soon had action.  We caught a couple more here, lost one on a jump, and had plenty of other cheap shots and another solid bite or two.  It was as good as it gets and then the rain chased us away.  Fishing should stay hot for a while now.  3 for 6
