Fished last weekend with Mike in Islamorada. We fished for three days. Mike is primarily a fly fisherman do that was our focus. We jumped three tarpon, one each day, but unfortunately all three came unbuttoned. We eased our pain with good sized jacks and snappers. We had a bunch of shots at sharks on the flats but they were not interested in the fly. I'm sure at least a few would have chewed on bait. But that's the chance you take to catch them on the fly. Pro Tip: Shark takes on the fly are very subtle. Rarely do you "feel" a strike. Watch the fly and the line. If the line moves and the fly disappears, it's time to strike.
