Overall, August has been a disappointment for most tarpon anglers. The culprit has been a nagging south to southwest wind that has kept the surf off-color and not attractive for tarpon to thrive.
Wednesday on the way back from an offshore trip, I reported seeing flying fish within 4 miles of the jetties. Just before making the unusual sighting, I was thinking about how attractive the water was for tarpon. The water color was a blue-green, perfect for tarpon and other offshore fish.
