Weekend fishing

Got out for a little tarpon action on the kayak before the rain this weekend. Not too many fish around but did get my hands on this little guy. On a side note the weekend before I fished lake O with pops and some of his buddies from college. Lake was super low which made fishing thought. Only a few small bass were caught and this giant tilapia. We didn’t have a scale but length and girth measurements put it at 9.7lbs. Pretty close to record size. We also fish offshore with Jon Earhart of Chaos charters. He steered us to some nice kingfish mutton snappers and  mahi action.

    Good Lord...that's a huge tilapia! What did it eat and how was the fight?

    It ate a deep running crankbait. We throught it was a monster bass or a mudfish on until it flashed white in the water.
