Sunday morning started out wet. As I suspected, weather conditions had moved the main body of fish. On the hunt we went-but not for long. Next we dodged storms. Finally-I got the baits out at a spot of speculation. 10 minutes later we were tight with a 200lb giant (image above).

Once we landed and photographed the beast-the "bucket" was filled and we headed back to higher ground. One and done-smash and dash.

Weather was not avoidable on Tuesday. The day was spent preparing for the rest of the week.

I anticipate the rivers to be draining recent rain waters for the next few days. Last night-I did see that the tide went out-that's a good thing!

I'll be fishing hard the next few days and will be back here after I make this strike.

High winds and general inclement weather in April and May set the spawning cycle of tarpon back several weeks. while that offered many challenge back then-t5oday reap the reward of an over-abundance of an already exceptional cycle of fish.

When is tarpon fishing best? Now! The crowds are gone. The fish are returning from spawning with the sole purpose to regain lost body mass. In short-they're biting!

Not only is now the time to fish-now is the time for the giants. By fishing the bottom, we can specifically target the giant females.

Giant permit are moving in as close to shore as they'll be all year. We've been catching some brutes to 35 lbs. The fish hold tight to structure. Some finesse accompanied with pure physical strength are staple to landing one3 of these lifetime fish.

Enjoy some of the images from the past few trips!
