Three trips and a few tarpon... slow but still fun

Going to make this one short...  Had three trips the past few days.  First night we jumped 3 tarpon... a 15 pounder, 20 pounder, and 50 pounder.  Next night we got the big skunk on tarpon but did manage a couple snook... nothing exciting.  This morning we had some fun with one 10 pounder to the boat for James' first tarpon, a couple gator trout, and a slimy sail cat... couldn't find a snook if my life depended on it today.  All of the tarpon have been on black/purple HDUV Hogy's this week.  The trout were caught using a 4" worm.
Hopefully back to normal now that the cold is gone... we'll see!


Tarpon... everything else is just bait.
