4/4/13 Great april tarpon fishing in Islamorada

The april islamorada tarpon fishing was excellent today!  Incoming tide in the backcountry and this evening around the local bridges.  We caught plenty of live mullet first thing.  The day bites came on bottom rigged baits, we caught 4/4 before 10:00 am.  After that my anglers had enough, and we finished up catching trout, ladyfish, and some mangrove snappers for dinner.  Always good options on a backcountry fishing charter in islamorada.  This evening we had bait left over and fished the local bridges where we had some tarpon action the night before.  We weren’t able to land any the night before but had 2 solid bites and 1 miss a mullet.  Tonight was different we landed 4 out of 9 solid strikes which was great fishing.  Most the bites came on life mullet on the top, very exciting to watch the fish blow up a live mullet on top, just as fun as catching them!  If your looking to go on an islamorada fishing charter give us a call.  A total of 8 out of 13 tarpon today is very good fishing!  Islamorada tarpon fishing.
