5/16/18 May Florida Keys Fishing for Tarpon

Got out with Peter and Jack today for a full day of fishing.  We ran deep into the everglades in search of tarpon.  Found a pile of them but it was a short lived thing.  We got there and had a bite right away that we missed.  After another move we hooked another that stayed on there and Jack landed a nice 30 lb tarpon!  Things seemed to die out after that, it’s funny when we pulled up it was like being in tarpon valhalla and within 30 minutes it was crickets.  Some of those areas they can come and go in a hurry.  Anyways after that we switched gears and caught some trout in one of the nearby creeks.  Then found some more trout, snapper, and spanish mackerel in the bay for the last hour on the way home.  1 for 2
