9/15/16 September Tarpon Fishing in Islamorada

Got out after some tarpon today and we had good fishing.  Got a little later start at 7 AM as my anglers were from the UK and couldn’t contact them ahead of time, but no matter we had some bait saved from several days ago and some frozen stuff as well.  Anyways we only fished two areas and tarpon were loaded in both of them.  We caught 1 first thing in the morning in one of the channels on the falling tide, then didn’t have any more bites out of those fish but they were definitely around, we did manage a few sharks.  After the tide started to quit we went out further off the beaches and found a massive pack of fish.  We ended up catching 3 more but had 11 bites it was incredible.  Great day and probably the best fishing I have had all year for tarpon as far as the number of bites go.  You never know unless you go as I say we have tarpon here year round!  I have a couple more days coming up then a few open days, then at the end of next week I’m going to the Bahamas.  Look me up if you want to fish.  4 for 12
