4/12/13 Tarpon fishing stays hot!

Last night we went 2/6 on big tarpon in islamorada in the evening.  Started at 4PM and the action was on pretty quick, we were at the dock by 7 since my angler had enough!  Most fish were biting live mullets though a few bites on dead bait too.  Yesterday during the day I did not fish but was told it was action all day long with multiple boats hooking up in the local channels and around the bridges.  Today we ran into the islamorada backcountry tarpon fishing.  Caught 1 out of 2 early on, though the bite stopped around 9 AM and we stayed till 10 but no more action.  We caught plenty of ladyfish and some nice trout after that for a bit, and then ran off east cape sable.  Caught 5 ‘mud marlin’ and 3 big sharks – a lemon, a blacktip, and a nurse.  Not a bad day you could say we literally caught a ‘ton’ of fish!  This week has been great tarpon action every day and on most trips multiple fish caught, now is the time to go tarpon fishing in islamorada!
