Recommended tarpon flys for St Pete

Can I get a recommendation on what flies the tarpon are taking out of Fort Desoto?

    I'm no Tarpon pro by any means, but if no one else is going to reply. I don't know much about that area, but I feel you can not go wrong with black and purple. I would not go Tarpon fishing without a few black and purple EP flies. I have been tying a Mullet pattern, with EP head, and marabou tail, and a small wrap of black purple EP sparkle brush in between, 3 1/2" long. I have been getting eats up in Daytona, on it. My Tarpon count is low, but almost all caught, or hooked on black/purple, or all red. Hope this helps, good luck.
