1 for 2 tarpon tonight... chased out by the wind

Wind has been a bear lately. Stout NE winds has made the West side of Charlotte Harbor (where I typically fish) tough to get out. Tonight the wind seemed to not be so bad so I headed out to see what the juvis were doing. Ended up getting out there on a slack tide, about to start incoming. Jumped a 15 pounder on my second cast, then got one similar sized to the boat about 30 minutes later. Then the wind picked up quite a bit along with the incoming tide and I called it a night. Had fun still but man this wind is relentless.

Bad picture but here she is... you can't tell from the pic but it had a very big stomach... been eating well lately it would seem.

    The wife and I were sitting on the patio that night and she said man the wind picked up. My reply to her was you know why? Kmag is trying for tarpon tonight.

    Haha... thanks for thinking of me. :)
    Tonight it was butter calm out there. Jumped one 80 pounder.
