Tarpon in Tight

November 6, 2014

This tarpon hit a live mullet in 2’ of water near an island.  When he took it off the surface, it sounded like a cannon ball hit the water.  I thought giant snook at first as I wound in the slack line.  When I finally came tight and the circle hook found its set, the fish jumped and ran like crazy.  There was no doubt what it was when it jumped 6’ in the air, not 10’ from the boat.   Great game fish!  We resuscitated him boatside and he swam away strong.
