Well we had a chilly week again but water temps finally breached 70 degrees yesterday in the backcountry. I had Reg and Lucinda whom were really after some tarpon and wanted to see it in the backcountry. I wasn’t sure it’d be good or not, but today was our day. Luckily we made it happen, not a ton of tarpon back there but enough we landed 2 and missed a 3rd. But looks like no more cold fronts in the immediate future, and the winds are going to be a standard 10-15 mph. So that should be good for tarpon fishing back there. I also have had several days open up due to corona virus fears… so check with me you could get lucky and have cherry picked awesome early season tarpon days available, because otherwise I’m more or less booked through to Mid June.
