Tarpon on Fly But Most Just Lie

Beautiful day today warm with a cooler North Wind.....that was a problem this morning as the barometer drop kept the Tarpon submerged.

We did manage a 60 lb. fish that chomped our Mylar Minnow Fly in a brief feeding period.

A Sink Tip line and light leader helped to take the fly down quickly in 5 ft of backcountry channel.

Other guides reported a lack of high water column, rolling Tarpon also from areas east and west of
the Gulf Flats and the spot we chose to fish.

Tarpon respond to a falling barometer sometimes spoiling our best chances, tomorrow's wind change brings rising barometer and Tarpon.
