4/3/14 April Islamorada Tarpon Fishing Report

It’s April and the tarpon have made their presence known here in Islamorada and throughout the Florida Keys.  Islamorada tarpon fishing is the big thing here for the next several months.  We’ve had a great early season and the weather is now really getting right for a big month in April.  Plenty of big schools of baitfish (mullet) have been showing up, several big ‘balls’ of thousands at a time that we use for bait.  The last few days I’ve been having great action fishing live mullet for tarpon.  We’ve had 6 fish to the boat in the last 3 trips, and over another fifteen or so that didn’t quite make it there!  Lots of other fish boiling, flashing, and busting the baits that weren’t hooked too.  It’s game on here for april tarpon fishing in Islamorada.  The fishing should only get better.  I’m booked most every day but I do have evening trips available that go from 4 to 8 PM so check with me.  It is a great time to go after big tarpon and the bite around sunset usually goes off!  You can see from the pictures below we’ve been having wild action the last month, and as stated before April only gets better.  The weather usually stabilizes and the big schools of migrating fish show up along with the schools of mullet.  It’s a mixture for tarpon craziness that you don’t want to miss!  Drop me a line lets get you hooked up to the fish of a life time!
