4/22/18 Tarpon Fishing April Islamorada Florida Keys

Got out with Ricky Walker and his son David today along with my dad.  Ricky used to do a fishing TV show over in Europe which my dad had done several shows with him 25 years ago.  Was good to have him on the boat.  We mixed it up and did a few different things but tried tarpon early on.  No luck first thing we fished locally and didn’t get a bite.  So we caught more bait and headed out into the backcountry which was a good move as it seemed to be crazy around town being a sunday later on when we came home.  We jumped a tarpon first thing back there and caught several big sharks including some lemons, blacktips, and a monster bull.  We then found some tarpon up inside some creeks and caught David his first one, about a 45 lber!  We had one other bite that we missed and then we caught some snook and a big trout the rest of the day.  Lots of fun!  1 for 3
