10/25/17 October Half Day Tarpon Fishing Islamorada

Got out with Steve and Mario for a half day of fishing in Islamorda.  We were after some fish for dinner but I told the boys I had heard there were a few baby tarpon around some of our mangrove islands as well as snappers.  Boy did we find ’em!  We landed 3 tarpon and jumped off a couple others, in 3 different spots!  Also got a snook, various snappers, and a lemon shark as well as a nurse shark.  The place was alive!  It was actually harder getting our legal size snapper then it was hooking into tarpon surprisingly!  Well I guess the rumors I heard were true.  Not sure how long it’ll last as we have a cold front hitting tonight, though it won’t get crazy cold.  But it’d be a nice thing to have these fish around for the next few weeks makes life easy on our short half day trips!  3 for 5
