The Catch

The Tarpon bite has been on FIRE!!!! Over the last 2 weeks I’ve fished 20 Tarpon trips, usually 2 trips during the day and one at night. My worst trip in the last 10 days we only boated 2 Tarpon, but jumped 9 more off and had a bunch of bites. We caught a 7’11” 225lb monster, and a 7’2” 195lb fish too in the same trip. Most of the fish have been in the 120-160lb range. And that’s a huge average. My best trip this week was yesterday, when we jumped 19, and landed 11. All on live bait!! So tell your boss your sick, or get off the couch and let’s go Fishing with Short Drift Charters, and Captain Shannon
