Placida proved to be a good spot for some tarpon action last week as we went one for 3 on fish around the 50-60 pound mark during a good outgoing tide.
This past week's warm front really raised the water temperature and when we had a night with a break in the wind we went for it in Charlotte Harbor... only to be skunked. We saw a few roll but we just couldn't get any to commit. Total bummer but unfortunately it happens on occasion.
Last night we had another break in the wind and fished the Peace River, and we were rewarded with 4 tarpon in the air and one coming to the boat. 3 of them were between 20-40 pounders and the one I really wanted to see boatside was around 90 pounds... but she had other plans. Ahh well... glad to see the fish are still hanging around during this cold front we're going through.
