The Catch
Jack Crevalle

I am happy to say, I have some of the best customers in the world and I have been around. But sometimes you get special people that you root for. That was the case today. They wanted Tarpon and I so wanted for them. First drift, we had a very respectable Jack Crevalle.  And then on the second drift, a small Tarpon, jumped off and then a small Barracuda, rest of the morning, no Tarpon. At the end of the morning, boom! The coveted Tarpon, 50 lbs.+ and then as soon as he came he was gone… We were all happy to have seen it, the Silver King. That is why after over 25 years it keeps me coming back, not because it is easy but because it is hard!
