9/27/19 September Tarpon Fishing in the Everglades

Fun day with Eamon and Cecilia!  We fished the backcountry and tried for tarpon early on.  Still a bunch of them back there, going crazy with the mullet run happening.  We did manage to get a nice one early on, fishing our lighter gear on live bait.  A good 40 lb fish.  After that though, no other action out of them.  We focused on some bigger snook and such which was good the last few days for me, but today that seemed to die down we didn’t get any bites.  But we fished for smaller snook and redfish on some shorelines the rest of the day, which was fairly productive and lots of fun!  The winds kicked up a good bit by mid morning.  Looks like it’ll be a little breezy sunday/monday, but staying northeast so the bait run should continue.  1 for 1
