A nice group of 10 anglers from Georgia and Pennsylvania visited us. During their visit we experienced more rain than normal for September, so they actually fished about 1 1/2 days. In that time they jumped 15 tarpon between 80 - 140 lbs. Additionally they caught 2 really nice snapper 20 & 35 lbs. So fish for dinner!! As previously mentioned we have experienced more rain than normal for September as it is usually a fantastic weather and fishing month. Hopefully we are getting back in our good weather pattern because the fishing is good.
