Fished with Mike and Mike in Islamorada last weekend. I mixed up my days and said the monster cuda was on Saturday but it was on Sunday. Mike also had a nice tarpon sight fishing on the flats on Saturday. Sunday also produced a bunch of shark releases plus a bunch of nice jacks and snappers. A great weekend over all with nice weather! Pro Tip: Let sharks discover a bait on their own. However, if they are having trouble finding the shrimp, bumping the bait slightly sometimes gets their attention and results in a bite.
