Fished for tarpon early Sunday morning with Brian from Michigan. There was a lot of small tarpon around and bites were hard to come by. We only saw a few big tarpon roll in the slick calm conditions and the water was gin clear which added to challenge to get the fish to bite. Brian was throwing lures and soft plastics and was in front of a lot of tarpon. The one fish he finally got to eat was on a live bait thrown in front of a couple of rolling tarpon.
Finished the day in search of permit and bonefish west of Key West. Conditions were good considering an approaching cold front, but we only saw a couple of permit and not much else.
