We’ve still been bagging the tarpon pretty good back around flamingo and the rest of the backcountry. Been catching fish every day and most trips multiple tarpon. Still many 30 – 60 lbers. We even had a double header two trips in a row with the same customers – on a full day trip and an evening trip. The fresh mullet has been the ticket which I’ve been getting with ease most days. There has still been some good snook fishing around many islands and creeks. Casting big shrimp or soaking pinfish has done the trick for them. We got into some big goliaths in the gulf the other day, groupers that is. Along with some big bull sharks. We also had some good action with a few decent sized sea trout on the edge of the gulf, mostly on shrimp though some on artificial GULPs as well. If you want to go fishing this August, I can probably fit it in my schedule as it is getting to be off season. Tarpon are still a very good possibility if your looking for them shoot me an email!
