Fast and furious tarpon bite this am (RIP Paul Walker). Lost a couple bigguns due to leader fray. 80# was always plenty on a rod and reel but for some reason it's not enough with the hand line. Anyways, live mullet were the ticket, trolled and free lined pretty much anywhere near the beach. Helped Mapache Mike get him some nice tarpon too, gave him my last live bait and he caught a 50-60 lb poon on it. Sorry Mike, I got you addicted to this fishery now. Here's some of the action. Tight lines.
