I was out in the pass last Friday and i saw a school of tarpon about 50 rolling in the pass. and yes they were tarpon no doubt i've seen millions of them down in the keys. i was really amazed at the number i saw here in Pensacola pass never before have I seen more than one or two in this area.

I have seen small schools of about 5-8 fish 3 times in Pensacola and I believe all were during cobia season and while fishing the pass in Apalachicola one day we saw about a half dozen single fish roll on top of the water and i positive all these sightings were tarpon

A bunch came through around Pensacola Pier a couple weeks ago. 4 or 5 were hooked. One guy canvassed the entire pier following his around.

I've seen them in Indian Pass in November over Thanksgiving.

Avoid them if at all possible. They will cause knots to form on your back, shoulder, and arm muscles, and that Y-shaped vein will pop out on your forehead. Chasing them will put a hole in your wallet, also.
