Hey BK-you are certainly not hinting at a fake catch are you? The angler is leaning hard on the opposite side to off-set half of the fish's weight. The upper body weight of a big guy is way more than enough to balance half the weight of a 150# fish. Also, the picture only tells the boats position for the fraction of a second the shutter was open. Perhaps it was listing more than that after the snap.

 

And I wasn't there, so I am just speculating here..

Un-frickin-believable!

 

That's seems like the best of kayak fishing.

Tarpon & Bonefishing the shallows of Florida Keys. What a dream..warm water and big fish.

 

That's it...July 4th weekend road trip to the Forida keys. Any takers? wink.gif

Only in our dreams....

I've been having this recurrent dream about pulling that 150lb tarpon up for a picture just as a 2 ft high dorsal fin starts racing toward my boat from the opposite side.

 

No ominous Jaws music piped into the background though.
