Tarpon Time

Trip Summary

If you haven’t noticed by the amount of boats this weekend the tarpon have finally come into Boca Grande and surrounding waters. They are feeding best on crab, although I did watch a guy hook into a 100lb tarpon using a live jumbo shrimp. Threadfins also are **hidden content** bait for these guys. I found a pod that was all alone, I hooked into the biggest one in the school! Digging for the school and giving quite the fight. She was so large she couldn’t even jump fully out of the water. After a 45 min fight this big momma wore though the leader, but not before I got a few snapshots! Now is the time to get out there and have some fun on the water!
