We have had some really nice weather this past week and the fishing has been pretty good. We are starting to see more schools of tarpon pushing in and we are seeing them in up on the flats now too. The Tarpon bite in the harbor has still been hot and cold, but that should get more consistent as season moves forward. We had a great night tarpon bite a few nights ago way up to the east. They were blowing up schools of Mullet so we were casting large baitfish flies at them and it worked well. I fished way out in the Gulf yesterday on some wrecks. It was decent fishing, with a lot of nice size Snappers and a Goliath Grouper, but we didn't find any Cobia out there. The Sailfish bite offshore has been great and we got a lot of bites using live ballyhoo. This week might even be better for it because we are getting a good northeast wind. We are also starting to see some big Mahi showing up way offshore
