10/19/16 Florida Keys Tarpon Fishing in October

Got out today with long time client Jeff Godlewski.  Jeff normally brings a big corporate group down in the spring, but was here by himself for a quick work trip so he came to see me.  We got out early and luckily still had some good bait from the other day.  We found the tarpon in the same general area and set up.  We soon hooked a nice 70 lb fish that Jeff landed, he put on quite a show!  We moved around a bit and then we hooked another one close to the same size maybe 60 lbs though.  He came in much quicker though.  After that we tried for a bit longer but no more luck, so we tried some other things and caught a handful of snook and some nice mangrove snappers for dinner.  Another fabulous day fishing here in Islamorada in October.  Looks like we may get a cold front this weekend, not gonna get super cold but may be enough to turn the tarpon off for a little while…  Anyways will probably try it again the next couple days and then not booked for a little bit so look me up if you wanna go fishing next week.  2 for 2
