0/2 tarpon and one snookasaurus

Placida.
Had Matt, Eric, and Casey for guests tonight.
Got to the spot and within 15 minutes one adult tarpon was jumped by Casey using pinfish. Thought for sure he was coming into the boat but after about a 5 minute battle another good fish fell victim to the outboard. Makes me want to cry.
Shortly after that one Matt hooked up on another adult tarpon... this time on a 7" Hogy. He got a few jumps out of him and a couple good runs before spitting the hook. Ahh well...
We messed around for a bit while the tide was dying and didn't do well except Matt hooked up on the fattest 34" snook I've ever seen. (I'll post a pic tomorrow that doesn't do this fish any justice). That girl had some juice and made some long runs... also caught on a 7" Hogy.

Fun night... we were all happy with 2 adult tarpon and a fat snook in March.

Tarpon... everything else is just bait.
