Went out this morning with my friends Alex and Bob. Ran down the beach - pogies everywhere. Found some Tarpon rolling and busting bait between 520 down to steeples. We did run down to patrick but the pogie pods disappeared south of steeples. Was kind of weird but the water off Patrick was beautiful and clear.
We lost a few Tarpon but managed to get this one to the boat. Took me about an hour to get him in. Circle hook caught him right in the corner of the mouth. This fish was pulling an 18 foot action craft flats boat around... lol. Almost spooled me so we had to chase him for a little while. Estimated somewhere around 100 lbs.
Revived Tarpon and he pushed off nicely from the boat.
This is too much fun, get out and catch a trophy!
