My husband and I decided to take our son fishing for Tarpon during our visit to St. Pete beach. We were referred to captain Tom and our first impression we were blown away by how nice the boat was (my husband went on and on about it). We took a ride out to Egmont Island and went 2 for 5 with both fish estimated at over 150lbs! I highly recommend fishing with Captain Tom if you are in the area.
