Went out in the kayak on Friday and Saturday and managed one tarpon on each outing, both in the 70-80lb range. The one on Friday ate a Bomber mullet while being trolled and leadered in about 20 minutes. Saturday's came on a spoon and took about an hour or more and dragged me about 2 miles out, I hooked up about 1/2 mile off the beach. I was whooped on the ride in! Conditions were a little sloppy (for a kayak) on Friday afternoon, but Saturday in clean conditions I was able to see a lot of tarpon rolling around, bonita and 916also had a school of large jacks cruise under while hooked up.
