January Islamorada Shark Fishing

Well the weather is still fairly warm though we are suppose to get some cold sunday night.  Not terribly cold but will likely change things up a little for a few days.  Today we caught mackerels and did some shark fishing for the last couple hours of the day.  It was pretty good we found a bunch of tarpon rolling in a channel though we had no bites out of them.  But we caught a big blacktip and two monster bull sharks about 150 and 200 lbs!  What a battle on the spinning gear!  Anyways if it warms back up again we will likely have an early spring and that means big stuff… tarpon, sharks, sawfish, goliath grouper!  This winter has been warm so far so it wouldn’t surprise me if we get rolling steady with the big critters again after this little cold front.
