Gary from NH wanted to set out this weekend to try to catch his first ever tarpon. Mission accomplished with several landed and multiple grabs on fly. Take advantage of the mid to the last of the incoming tide to catch more than your fair share of tarpon and snook in the backwaters and canals.
You never get tired of catching those micro poons on light gear especially from a kayak! Tough to veer off from using the old standard tarpon toad though I've been doing well on rabbit strip and muddler flies...really anything that pushes water well especially when they're actively feeding.
Man that is awesome. Some of the coolest fishing is small tarpon, flyrod, and tight quarters. I've had them jump INTO the trees in some tight places. Pound for pound, those little buggers pull harder than anything. Thanks for sharing.
