Ever have a tarpon jump in your boat? Think you've snagged the bottom or a log only to find you've hooked a crocodile? That and more--snook, trout, black drum and tarpon! My buddy Mike (Intheslot12) was on fire! Here are some pictures from Sunday in Flamingo. The tarpon was rather "green" as you might imagine, so I dropped a towel on him to try to calm him down!

Great day in the Everglades National Park yesterday with my buddy Mike fishing on his awesome HPX-18. That boat will fly! Post-front, blue bird sky with warming temperatures. These transition periods present great opportunities to catch multiple species. We fished from the East Cape Canal to the Shark River area and inside in Oyster Bay before making the run back to Flamingo (just in time to exit before the barrier went up at West Lake at 7:00 p.m.!). Big numbers of black drum, red drum, snook, trout (with a few snapper, cat fish and jacks thrown in) and 1 tarpon in the air early in the morning. Surprisingly (based on recent reports) we caught more redfish than snook, though we had 7 or 8 really nice robalo. The black drum and most of the trout were caught with live shrimp on jig heads as were some of the snook and redfish. Many other snook, red fish, trout and the tarpon hit soft plastics (mostly paddle tails in natural color with some sparkle and chartreuse tails) rigged weedless. Here are a few pictures from the day.
