6/9/18 Tarpon Fishing Islamorada in June

Got out with Mark and Andrew again for Day 2 today.  We left out early and tried a local spot for tarpon to start real quick.  No action aside from a couple sharks, but we gave it a try anyways.  We made a long run into the everglades.  Found a good pile of fish way in the backcountry.  We got our bite pretty quickly and Andrew caught a nice 50 lb tarpon!  After that we reset and I thought we’d have some good fishing.  But they didn’t want to play any more.  We watched tarpon rolling literally right on top of our baits but no more love.  We did catch some big lemon sharks though.  We looked in a few other areas on the way home, and didn’t see much.  We finished the day catching some snappers and ladyfish in the bay for fun.  Glad to have gotten another one, but fingers crossed things get a little easier soon!  1 for 1
