The Catch

Well let’s just say you know when you get a bite..  Some giant Tarpon have been biting live and dead bait in the South Florida ICW in the past month or so. Lots of other action to go with them as well, snappers, snook and Sharks are among a few of them.  We are fishing a combination of heavy tackle and light tackle at the same time. Chumming sardines and live chumming pilchards have been bringing them right in..  Both tides have been productive and bait has been plentiful.  Comfortable temperatures at night make this the perfect trip.
