Sarasota tarpon 10/25/2012

What a suprise when this guy lept into the air. I took Hank to look for cobia or the giant redfish moving down the coast. We had already caught 2 red drum over 40" when the tarpon bit. Hank is 74 and he boated that fish in less than 40 min. South bound tarpon in late October in a wind storm...against all odds!

    Capt'Charlie you have some great luck. A Sailfish inside 3 miles and now a October Tarpon. I think I need to go out with you. Nice Reds too!

    We were close to the beach and it was ok until noon. Just a couple miles out it was rough.
    The fishing was great for a couple weeks out there but this wind might have screwed it up.
