5/12/19 Mothers Day Tarpon Fishing Trip

Glenn and Karen had a great time with me yesterday! We focused on tarpon early and had some good luck. Glenn jumped a fish off first thing, then a little later got a nice smaller 40 lber to the boat. After that Karen was up. She landed two 50 lb and 65 lb fish. We also got a tripletail that floated by us. After that the tide slowed down and we switched gears. Found a good school of redfish to keep us busy the next hour. Had a big lemon shark get after them though, but we were able to lock our drags down and keep any more reds from his mouth. We tried one last area for snook before heading home, no luck there but we did get another redfish and a few catfish. Fishing feels like it’s getting a little tougher, bait has gotten a bit more difficult we will likely have to spend some time on that today. But overall still great fishing!  3 for 4
