4/2/19 April Islamorada Tarpon Fishing Report

Great day with Reagen and Dirc, return customers of mine. We tarpon fished early on and had good luck. Reagen caught two large fish about 130 lbs and 110 lbs. The second one almost got eaten by a big hammerhead, he got away but was missing a few scales. After that we also got a monster blacktip shark. We moved areas and then Dirc got his tarpon, not quite as big but a good 50 lber. We caught a few more sharks and big sting rays after that. Finished the day with a solid redfish bite again, catching probably 2 dozen. We also got a couple tripletails while running around too. Back at it tomorrow and think I will be doing other stuff not tarpon, so we will see what happens. Winds are suppose to blow but at least going back northeast instead of Southwest which we had today.  3 for 3
