Tarpon

Fished with Mike and Ryan in Islamorada. We had tough weather on Saturday. Lots of wind but we persevered. We caught a bunch of mutton snappers and jacks. However, the main event was a double header tarpon hookup. We jumped one off after a spectacular aerial display and proceeded to chase the other. After a prolonged fight we released the tarpon boatside. We also jumped a third tarpon but lost it after several jumps. Pro Tip: Remember to not pull back on tarpon in the air.

Snook and Redfish

Fished with Mike and Ryan in the Everglades. We caught snook and redfish in the Everglades. We also had a few encounters with salt water crocodiles. It was a beautiful day. Pro Tip: Slow down your retrieve in off color water. Fish can zero in of smell and vibration of a live shrimp.

Islamorada Day Three

Fished with Mike and Ryan day three. We caught lots of fish all day including jacks, mangroves, mutton snappers, lookdowns, and others. We also broke off two tarpon. Pro Tip: There is usually a sweet spot in the current cycle. A time in the tide when the current is moving just right. Be there at the right time and the bite will go off.

Islamorada

Fished with Matt and Gabby in the Keys. It was windier than usual. We made it work though. Saturday we caught jacks, snappers, and cudas. The fish of the day was a nine pound plus jack. Pro Tip: Knowledge of places to fish in the lee of the land is crucial to turning a blow out into a fun day.
