We went on our annual tarpon trip to Islamorada week before last. We timed the migration better than ever. On our best day on the ocean side we saw between 300 to 400 fish, unfortunately those ocean side fish are notorious for not eating, quite frustrating. However, we got some bites and landing done on the bayside. Just got some photos uploaded.

Actually these fish were heading straight probably to find a worm hatch and then spawn. Over 90% were heading south. In the past we went a little later and most were heading back north then. I would estimate most were between 40 and 80 lbs. but I'm not the best of judges especially when they are in the water. At least we can't say we didn't get any shots.
