well, i went again this afternoon/evening and had similar results. species was the only thing similar.

the first tarpon i caught was about 80lbs. the one i got tonight was a little guy. but DANG did he do some jumping. because it was a smaller fish, we didn't get the camera out in time to get any arial shots, but here's a picture of my second jetty tarpon in texas just before release.

i guess i should go back and verify... for that jumping tarpon picture, the "X3" meant 3 jumps, not 3 tarpon. as i went back and read it, i thought that could be misleading. it was one tarpon around 80lbs with 3 jumps.

i guess here's a good time to give the story in words. last tuesday i got done with work early and went to the back side of hte island to try and net up some mullet. didn't work out for me, just some alwives. so i called my buddy that i was going to fish the jetty with and told him i had no bait. he said to come by the shop and get some big shrimp. at that suggestion, i figured king fishing was out, but tarpon and snook like shrimp. so i went to Port A Outfitters and got about a dozen of the biggest shrimp i've ever used for bait and headed to the jetty. pulled up about a half hour before dark. sun was already down, so i walked/ran to the end of the mile long jetty with my shrimpies. soon as i got to the end i saw some tarpon rolling and started chunking my shrimp on my king rod. felt kinda weird, but oh well. on about my 3rd bait i got a big hit and immediately started setting the hook. asi was jacking her up, she came clear out of the water and WOOHOOOO that was cool. i turned around to see my buddy nathan making his was up the last hundred yards of the jetty. i yelled at the top of my lungs to get out there and throw a shrimp, i had a tarpon on. so, after a couple more jumps and about a 20 minute fight all over the end of the jetty channel and beach side, i got the fish to my feet and laid down to pick my fish up. uh oh. i can't get this big girl up. so i hollared for nathan to give me a hand, and it took both of us to lift the fish out of the water. unfortunately, neither of us brought a camera and at this point, it was dark, so the camera phone pictures are indescernable. we grabbed 2 scales and i did all i could to hug the fish and carry it to the calm channel side for release. man, what a freaking experience. 16lb mono and 30lb fluoro leader to land a tarpon pushing 100lbs with rocks all around and sticking out of the water. certainly my best fight to date.
