So lucky to get the opportunity to chase tarpon with my brother in west Fl this weekend.  Many hookups.  Many fails but a few to the boat including this gem.  
 

Such a beast. I’ll be back for sure

 

Fish of a lifetime for me 

 

Wow what a workout, I’m still sore and shaking.   Lol.

Nice catching jimbighead. Tarpon are very hard to get to the boat. I’m in SW Fl now & was out sight fishing with a buddy in Lemon Bay ,Boca Grande area last week. We were targeting snook & redfish around mangrove keys. Caught bluefish, sea trout & ladyfish. No premium fish, but good to be out. Heading back north next week. 

 

How about sharing reel, line & tackle info.

 

Hope to try my luck for big Tarpon someday. Still learning the area down here. Scrappy juvenile tarpon are around my area in backbay estuaries, intercoastal, and holding ponds. Locals pretty closed lipped, I get it.
Congrats again on catching “The King Tarpon”
