10/12/22 Great October Tarpon fishing in the Everglades

Well the last week or so there’s been lots of tarpon showing up in the backcountry with the arrival of the Fall mullet run.  Tons of fish in the 40 to 60 lb range with some big bruisers mixed in too.  We fished yesterday and today out there for them and has some good luck.  Yesterday we just fished for a couple hours and landed two nice medium size tarpon and four juveniles in other areas.  It was tarpon action every where we went!  Today we fished a shortened 3/4 day as the boys had to be in by noon, but again good fishing we hooked 6 tarpon and landed 3 as well as some big sharks.  The fish are out there in number and I imagine it will still be productive for at least a couple more weeks and who knows maybe into November if the weather stays warm.  You can check out a couple videos of the last couple days action here and if you are wanting to get out fishing, give me a shout!  If I’m not available I have Capt. Brandon at the ready and he’s dialed in to the tarpon patterns as well.
