2017 Summer Poons.

Not quite the year E-type had, but lots of fun, and frustration. Lots of break offs from leader problems, line wrapping around reel seat, and tangles jamming in stripping guide. Got the leader inside of stripping guide on a few 100 pounders, a few 60 to 80 pounders, and some 40 to 50. First three pictures are the same fish during same jump, two from my view, one from other boat.

    Wow, this is awesome. Are you the same guy that had the Jon Boat Advantage site? If so, I met you out shrimping a couple of years ago. Either way, I really have to start trying to catch these Tarpon next summer. You are an inspiration!

    Thanks guys, brp yes one and the same. Google locked me out. It is still up and running, but I can't get in to make any changes. It was a free web site and they wanted my phone number so they could contact me, I declined.

    Can't say I blame you. Glad to hear your still at it. I'll keep a lookout for you on the water.
