Phillip and GJ from Louisiana

After quickly getting a livewell full of greenies, we headed to an area were the tarpon had been, no tarpon there that morning so I quickly moved to another drop off and boom, Phillip hooked up wit a very decent Jack Crevalle of about 28 lbs., after that release, GJ jumped and lost 2 medium size tarpon, and then a triple tail, a very unusual catch for the bay, but a welcome source of protein for the guy’s table. Then we headed to the backcountry for the low tide, there Phillip released a small Tarpon and GJ got the fish of the day with a 50+lbs. Poon!!!
