Big Baracudas and Tarpon
We had s great morning Tarpon fishing, we left early to get on the fish first. First bait in the water took about 2 minutes to get eaten and my guy had his first Tarpon on! We fished for Tarpon a bit longer and ended up with a few more on but not to the boat, so we landed one out of three, great start. We didn’t even move and our next big fish was a 5 foot lemon shark, great fight on light tackle and also my customers first shark. After that we caught a few nice mangrove snappers while waiting for Tarpon, we had noticed Baracudas swimming in the area, so we decided it was time for one to be on the line, we put a live 14 inch snapper on a wire rig with a balloon 2 feet above hook. It took about 5 seconds and we had a massive Cuda on. It was a nice one! Measuring about 50 inches, that’s a stud. We left our honey hole from the morning and did some flats fishing, I poked the boat into some Permit and Cuda grounds. We saw a few Permit but had no luck getting a good shot at them, we did end up with another Cuda that was bigger than the first and we sight castes to it which is much more rewarding. Great day.
