5/5/17 May Tarpon Fishing Florida Keys

Got out for the last day with the Stepan Polymers group.  Today the winds kicked up good out of the southwest, with a weak late cold front hitting us.  There was a good bit of rain coming in from the gulf too but was a ways off.  We made it into the backcountry and fished the channels where I hadn’t been in a while.  We ended up getting a couple tarpon and a few sharks so it was a good move!  The rain chased us back near town and we spent the rest of the day there.  Had to stay pretty close due to weather and lightning.  Never really saw any tarpon, we caught a couple jacks and sharks, and that finished up our day.  Glad to have gotten a couple on a nasty day!  Off tomorrow for oil change, then Sunday back at it… looks like the weather will be nicer by then.  May make for some good conditions again!  2 for 2
