Tarpon Madness 10/30/09

The silver kings have made another great showing in Naples the last few days. They are in all the normal spots eating mullet,whitebait,threads,flies and baitbusters. This morning was absolutely amazing for tarpon, they put on a show for two hours before we left them to find more. We caught one around 80lbs missed a few and broke one off. We made a short run and waited for about five minutes and they went nuts. We boated two more in the 70lb range and jumped a few more. It was now about 1045am and we had enough time to catch some trout for dinner. We fished till 1145 and caught 20 trout to 19' bringing home 10 for dinner. The snook, tarpon and trout fishing has been great. We have a great full moon tide coming up early next week and the tarpon should stay great till a few days after. Snook and trout fishing has been on fire along with big jacks and plenty of mackeral off the beaches.
