late report snook and tarpon

sorry for the late report but this is from Sunday and Monday. So the local spillways have been on fire lately with all this rain and bad weather, so went to my spillway on Sunday and got a small snook around 22 and a even smaller snook about 18, then we started hooking into to small, very small tarpon everywhere, so I managed a small tarpon and so did my buddy. the next day on Monday I went to the spillway again and started working topwaters and got a lil 20 incher. as the flow of the spillway picked up I decided to throw a hawk.( I was very exited to have the chance to break in my new stradic fj 4000 and the first fish on it was the lil ****). so I worked my red tail hawk and lost a huggeee snook!! about ten mins later I stuck a nice fish and after a great fight on my new reel I landed the snook and it was over slot at 34 inches, later that day I got a 24 and lost a decent tarpon then got a nice 26 on a doa cal. sorry for the sideways pics not sure about that?
