Florida Trip

Just got back from a great florida trip. I was in the Longboat key are 1 1/2 hours south of Tampa bay. Great Mangrove fishing. Fished for two full days and had 16 snook, largest 38", 2 Jacks, largest 7 1/2 lbs, and a sea trout.
I was hoping for some redfish but they had all moved off the flats. I Loved the snook fishing it was awsome. I also spent 1/2 of the second day fishing for Tarpon. There not on the flats yet but we drove up to the De Soto bridge in St. Pete and with sinking lines and big threadfin Herring immitations fished the eddies as the tide was comming it. It was alot like Striper fishing. I was fine with not site fishing because I didn't even expect to have a shot at a tarpon, not to mention that the best part is the fight anyways. I got two to the boat 90lbs, and 120lbs. It was awsome. I had two others on but I lost them really quickly. It was a great time.
