Finally.... my first Tarpon in the boat

Been trying to land a tarpon for years now... jumped 3 a few weeks ago but lost em all almost immediately. FINALLY got one in the boat tonight. Funny thing is, I was going to change lures and started to set the rod in the holder, then I was decided to throw one more time at the back corner of the dam... voila.

Now I gotta start trying to get one that's bigger than a smallmouth bass.

Oh... he's bleeding because somehow during the fight the hook went through his eye! Nasty... ripped it out.
He swam off good but I dunno if he's gonna make it. :stinkfish
Tarpon... everything else is just bait.
