6/2/20 Half Day Epic bridge tarpon fishing bite!

Got out with Jonathon and Kaylee today for a half day trip.  Had a last minute cancellation and I normally don’t do many half days but figured I’d take what I could and conditions looked pretty good.  We got out early for a little better tidal window.  Caught a nice tarpon right off the bat that Jonathan got to jump in with and get pictures of!  We then got some live bait and headed to the bridges.  The bite was going off, every bait we put out got piled on quick.  Tarpon, jacks, cudas…  We caught 3 more tarpon including a 150 lber!  Missed a couple others, and caught a big jack and a few big cudas.  Just hot and heavy action it was a lot of fun.  Tide slowed down around 9 and it was time to go home after that and we caught our last fish right around 9:15 so perfect timing.  4 nice tarpon landed in 4 hours, can’t beat that!

Also just launched latest youtube video.  A cool compilation of Pete’s big everglades tarpon from a couple days ago.  Mic went out on the gopro but we put it to music and it’s really cool!
