6/17/17 June Tarpon Fishing in Everglades National Park

Well it was nice to be a rockstar today after a couple slower days in a row.  Fishing hasn’t been easy but if you get in the right spot at the right time, it’s been very good.  Thats what we did today.  First stop we found a good number of tarpon and the sharks weren’t too bad.  We were able to catch several and then do other things the rest of the day.  I had my regular customers Barry Bicket and Sarah Cross over from the UK.  The last couple hours of incoming tide produced four bites and we landed all four fish.  After that we caught a bunch of snook and a few redfish, just one of those days where everything cooperated, which those days have been few and far between as of late!  Bait was thick with several big balls of mullet seen as we ran out, though as we lose our morning incoming tide that bait may got much tougher to catch.  Looks like we have some wind the next few days with some bad weather possible tomorrow too.    I have a half day will probably stay close to home, hopefully we can catch one early on!  4 for 4

6/15/17 – Had return customer Chase out with his brother Grant and father.  We had a tough day never really found many tarpon that wanted to cooperate.  Plenty of sharks though.  We did find one decent group of tarpon in the late morning, but just couldn’t get them to bite.  We worked hard at it too.  0 for 0
