I took a trip back to the area I ran into the baby tarpon off of Rt 41 last week. It was going to be tough fishing because the water level was way up. I tryed with the fly rod but I couldn't get near the fish which I could see roll a couple of times in openings way under the mangroves. They were hanging out in there with the snook I guess. I ended up using a spinning rod rigged weedless with doa shad tails. With that I was able to skip my lure under there to get to the fish. The plan worked and ended up catching a few along with loosing a few. I also caught a few smaller snook. The small tarpon were a blast to catch, they go crazy and go airborne almost immediately. It was a fun morning.
