Merv and I got up at 2:45 am and met at WAWA at 4:15 am. We launched at Oyster at 5:30 am and were cruising the barrier islands before sunrise. It took about an hour to find the tarpon and we stayed on them for 2 1/2 hours with no bites.Eel grass made bait fishing impossible and lures very difficult so we mainly threw out live croaker. Weather forecast was off on the wind which was suppose to be light from east but was 10 to 15 mph which made seeing fish difficult. Well at least we did find em!
