7/30/2023 Awesome half day tarpon action with Capt. Trent

Capt. Trent has been getting out lately and still had some good tarpon fishing on some local trips fishing half and 3/4 days.  Just got this report from him this afternoon saying they caught 4 out of 5 his trip today!  Bait was readily available still which is nice especially this time of year and the tarpon were really happy.  It was fairly calm and hot as has been the case often recently though they did end up getting rained on a little bit which wasn’t such a bad thing.  The way things are shaping up we should still have some decent tarpon fishing through August and September and it’s a lot slower with people down here then too so you can pick & choose your days a little more if weather is an issue etc…  I myself haven’t fished a ton lately as I’ve been home helping my wife with a broken ankle, but the few times I fished in July we did have some tarpon action in the backcountry as well as really good snook fishing.  Capt. Stephen is back from the Bahamas and has a few trips booked this next coming week and I have a couple myself so I’ll post some more reports in a week or so.  Though I know through July there was a good number of finger mullet in the backcountry which had good numbers of snook and small tarpon around them.  If you want to get a trip set up give me a shout me or one of the guys can get you out there!
