Here's a fishing report from what's been going on in the last week here in South Florida. The tarpon have been moving in and out of the backcountry as the weather permits,. This scenario usually starts with the fish staging in Ponce Bay at the mouth of Shark River and as the conditions permit the push into Oyster Bay and farther into Whitewater Bay. When the wind picks up the fish usually don't push all the way back out, but simply lay low until the conditions calm down. If we get cooler night time temps. the fish will push all the way back out into the gulf and stage again till the conditions are more favorable for them to move back inside. This scenerion plays out in late winter and into spring until the condtions are such that they are permanently in the back until the water temps. get to high and they leave and join the migration along the banks in Florida Bay and eventually to the ocean flats in the keys.
With tarpon fever already starting to set in I thought this would be a good subject to redeem my prior mistake.
Here's an old picture Capt Rob Fordyce gave me of a fish he thought was over 200lbs.
