I'm surprised you don't hook up with a Miami area guide. Most will spend one day in the Everglades and maybe another day off Biscayne Bay or maybe Key Largo. In late April your chance of getting into tarpon action is considerably higher in the Glades than in the Keys. The Gulfside of the Keys can have good fishing for laid up tarpon most of the year IF the wind is reasonable, but there is still more consistent sight fishing in the Glades most years at that time of the year. Also, a Miami area guide would know if the fishing isn't happening yet off Biscayne or Key Largo and would probably take you into the Glades both days. Bob LeMay is a very well known Miami area guide and so is Mark Ciobacca (I'm guessing at the spelling). If your heart is set on Islamorada, Steve Lavoie would be my choice. The problem is that getting dates with these guys on such short notice is not real good. Call Sandy Moret's Florida Keys Outfitters for help in booking a guide.
