They came from Bass Pro Shops…
Sam, Dave & Jon from Springfield, Missouri,
the home of my favorite store in the whole wide world, Bass Pro Shops!
The guys came in from the cruise ship at 8:30 am, not the best time for fishing but I knew there was a high tide at 10:51 am, I waited for them all baited up and ready to go with a livewell full of greenies. We quickly headed out to buoy #14 by the ledge and on the first drift we got a nice blue runner, on the next drift just past the second drop, boom, El Tarpon!!! A nice 50+ lbs. Specimen! 2 drifts later, another Poon, 40+ lbs., then the tide turned and we had about a half hour down time, but with a lot of good conversation. Then we moved to the channel markers and released a nice 25+ lbs. Tarpon and managed 2 more bites but no takers. You always have to remember, if you come from the land of Bass Pro Shops to fish San juan Bay, you can’t help but to find the Puerto Rico Tarpon Connection!!!
