The fish that got away!

The Catch
Jack Crevalle

Today we had a very fun day fishing with our new friend Rudy.

We managed to catch and release 2 hard fighting jacks during the first hour of fishing. After a 30 minute window with no bites, we hooked a monster tarpon that Rudy fought for almost an hour. Fish was estimated at 70 pounds and did several impressive jumps. The Famous Silver King.  Fish was getting tired and the angler too! (who wouldn’t after an epic one hour battle?!?). After an hour fight, the fish gave us a couple of shots of grabbing him for a quick picture but unfortunately spit the hook right at our faces at boatside.

Rudy and I had a great time and have another “The fish that got away” story to remember.  We will get him next time!
