Trout and Tarpon sighting at the Shoe
Went out on 6/23 about 30min after daybreak. Saw some decent trout action in the grass flats. Most were caught on live pinfish ranging from 14-20 inches. Threw some topwater when the floating grass permitted and hooked a few more trout and a handfull of jacks and blues (fun runs on the 10lb trout gear). I heard something large breach when I was on my platform only to see the remanence of disturbed water. A few minutes later two 40-60lb tarpon rolled 30yds off my bow. Threw a couple livies at them with no luck. I have been fishing this area for three years and this was my first tarpon encounter up here. Anybody ever tied into one out of the Shoe or Steinhatchee area? Sorry no pics spotty rain all morning.
