12/19/16 Islamorada December Inshore Fishing Trip

Got out with Jeff and George, a couple regulars of mine who I love to fish.  We caught the mackerels good this morning first thing.  Had to wait a bit for the tide to get going, but once it did it was a fish every cast.  We probably caught 30 or so mackerels in a little under 2 hours.  After that we tried the channels where we found some tarpon, sharks, and other creatures yesterday.  The tarpon were there but didn’t seem to want to play, but we did hook a huge ‘mud marlin’ sawfish which we had on for a while, though never got up to get a look at although we did get the leader multiple times.  We also caught a very large blacktip shark.  After that we went into the everglades creeks and George caught his first redfish, his first snook, and almost got a tarpon for the slam but unfortunately he came off after a few jumps.  Anyways all in all it was a great day here fishing in Islamorada in December!
