8/11/2020 August Everglades Tarpon Fishing

Got out with Thomas and Rebecca for a full day!  We fished an area I hadn’t been in a little bit, there were a good amount of fish there a couple weeks ago before the tropical storm graze but since then it had dried up.  But we checked first thing in the AM and it was loaded!  We ended up catching 6 tarpon in under an hour – amazing!  Mostly 30-40 lbers, but we hooked a couple double headers just simply as good as it gets.  After that we left ’em alone but there were a few more for the taking.  We finished the day with some tripletails, jacks, and had a couple snooks get eaten by sharks unfortunately.  But August fishing for tarpon is very good, seems we are getting are excellent ‘summer bite’ a little late this year.  Days are available the last couple weeks, and plenty in September too that can still be good don’t sleep on it!
