Trip to the FL Keys

Rate this topic

Good trip. Spent one day with a pro and was it worth it! 2 nice tarpon, multiple jacks, couple grouper and mangrove snappers for the table. My buddy had a nice jack and then almost got pulled off the boat. He reeled up half a fish! Last stop I raised a small tarpon on an artificial but was so surprised I didn't set the hook. Damn. But great day in the Keys.

Who was the outfitter?  I'll be down there in a few weeks.

Did you land the tarpon on a spinning reel?

Yep, our guide is a tester for Shimano, the reel we used was reported to retail at 1200 clams.

We got soaked coming in (but no thunder/lightening) but the next day was windy and I learned the Capn had canceled, so very much weather dependent. Glad we slipped our trip in and only got a little wet. After pulling 2 nice tarpon to the boat, we were glowing so much we didn't even mind the rain! Yeah they weren't 150 #ers but still very cool and a great fight. And both released and swimming off strongly.
