5/20/18 Fishing for Tarpon in May in Islamorada Florida

Got out with Jay, Dale, and Zack today for a full day trip.  Forecast looked a little gloomy another rainy day.  But our window to get over there it looked OK, we got some rain about half way back but it wasn’t too bad going with the wind.  We made the run into the ‘glades and found a good wad of tarpon again.  It was great fishing even better than the last couple days.  And the tarpon were there the entire time they didn’t disappear at all.  Actually got better as the day went on.  We ended up catching seven and jumped a couple others.  Hooked two double headers and landed both fish on the last one to finish the day!  Just epic fishing, plus several sharks too including some big lemons and blacktips.  Coming home we got drenched, but after having a day like that it didn’t put a damper on our mood at all.  Have the day off tomorrow but will be back at it Tuesday, hopefully can stock up on some bait.  Looks like more rain throughout the week but if the fish keep biting like this, doesn’t bother me at all!  7 for 9
