2/28/17 February Islamorada Fishing Report

Got out with Bob and Brian today and we did a mixed bag trip.  Tarpon was a priority but conditions didn’t look great with it blowing 15-20 out of the east.  We caught some mullet early and hit the backcountry channels.  Not much happening we only had a couple sharks bite, and only saw 1 tarpon roll.  Tried another channel and only one more shark.  Slow start!  We decided to regroup and bend the light rods a little.  The trout bite was pretty good actually and we caught probably 20 or so trout, getting our limit for dinner which was great for them.  We headed back towards Islamorada to try some local tarpon spots, and we got lucky and found a nice one for Brian.  He hooked an 80 lber and landed him after 20 minute battle, and then it was about time to go home.  Hopefully they’ll stick around tomorrow, may be doing the same routine we’ll see!

I probably will not be doing the daily updated reported on here any longer, but I’ll try to post something once a week or so.  Check out my other website islamoradatarpon.com for daily updated tarpon fishing reports through the Fall!
