5/22/19 May Backcountry Tarpon Fishing in the Keys

Fun fishing with Jared and Guy! We found a hungry pack of tarpon early. Trouble keeping them on the hook, but Jared got one to the boat finally. After that it slowed down but we got a few sharks. We decided to go find some snook which was very good again. Nice size line siders on our light gear. We then found a good school of redfish with some trout mixed in. Rod bending action every cast. We looked for permit to finish up, hoping to get lucky again but didn’t find them today. We did see a few more tarpon after that but no bites though a few more sharks. Back fishing tomorrow then a few days off. Looks like the winds will be kicking up for a few days.  1 for 4
