5/6/16 Islamorada Tarpon Fishing in May

Got out today again for a full day.  We tarpon fished early and tried a few channels and around some of the bridges.  Chilly with a light north breeze, unusual weather for May.  Anyways the weed was horrendous at the bridges, tough to fish the live baits.  There was also a tournament going on so one of them was covered in boats.  We didn’t have much luck in the morning, so we went and caught our nice mangrove snappers.  Then in the afternoon tried again we saw some rolling fish in one of the channels but no response.  Then finally ended up getting one on a dead bait in another spot after we fished for a while and saw one roll and got in front of him.  Anyways glad to have gotten another one, big 100 lb fish!  1 for 1
