Yesterday, went out of Hudson in search of hogs. In 38' of crystal clear water we saw, I don't know, 500 to 1000 tarpon lazily swimming under the boat. These were 30-50# fish, no really big ones, but not juveniles. Mixed with the poons were kingfish, also swimming lazily around. They did not seem to be going anywhere.
What was frustrating was we could not get them to eat anything. We were dropping chunks of threadfin, and sardines, live pinfish and even live shrimp. We even dropped some live shrimp without a hook and watched them drop right through the schooling fish. Never seen anything like this
