7/14/16 July tarpon Fishing in Islamorada Florida

Today we got chased around by rainstorms in the early morning.  We were able to fish on and off with the light rods for trout, ladyfish, and such.  But had to keep moving to dodge storms.  Finally by 9:30 or so we were able to run to the channels I wanted to fish for tarpon at.  The afternoon got nice and we hooked a nice tarpon straight away.  Landed him and then not much else for a little bit.  I only had one angler so we bent the light rods again for a little while and then tried another area for something big to end the day.  Didn’t see any tarpon there, but caught plenty more sharks.  We also had a big cobia swim up and we did hook him on a light rod but broke him off unfortunately.  Anyways was glad to get a tarpon and some other things, didn’t look like we were going to be able to do much the first couple hours of the day!  1 for 1
