Early season tarpon are around!

Got out fishing for fun with Capt. Rick Stanczyk.  He was showing me a few things about tarpon fishing locally around Islamorada a few tips and tricks.  We found a bunch of mullet and were able to catch a couple dozen to fish with.  We drove through some of the various channels and saw a couple tarpon in a couple spots.  Decided to set up in one area and sure enough after about 15 minutes we hooked a nice 50 lber that we landed!  Beautiful fish on a gorgeous day!  We checked out some of the bigger bridges further south and fished a little bit more without much luck but we did find one other area that had a good load of tarpon laying on the bottom so promising to see.  As long as things stay warm you should have some good shots at tarpon here for the next few months!
