Mr. Morgan,

Thank you for contacting FWC's Division of Marine Fisheries Management.

Though the law does not state that pulling a tarpon out of the water to take a picture prohibited, it is not recommended that you do so. Removing a large fish such as tarpon from the water removes the support that water gives the internal organs of the fish. Thus removing the fish from the water results in internal damage, possible severe enough to cause death. If the fish was observed to die as a result of the angler removing it from the water the fish would be considered harvested and without a tarpon tag you would be in violation of the regulations

I'm not sure who got the best of that fight. It looks like Konz won the early rounds but the tarpon came on strong in the end and almost knocked him out but he was saved by the bell. Split decision victory for the Tarpon

Great catch Konz and an awesome picture of the release.
