Fished with Peter and Jim in Islamorada on Sunday. We had great conditions and saw lots of life. We caught lemon and bonnet head sharks while sight fishing. We had a few tarpon shots but couldn't talk them in to it. Pro Tip: Flats fish usually are on the move. Look for shadows and movement to see fish that blend into the environment. If it isn't moving, it probably isn't a fish.
