Default August Tarpon

Just now getting around to posting due to my internship and school. Anyways, last month my brother and dad came down to help me move in and get settled and do some fishing. We went out one morning and were hooking into everything. Would have been a great day if we could have gotten the fish to the boat. We were trolling for kings and were hooking into monster kings and spinner sharks. Well, I ended up hooking into something they was pulling really hard just not like a king. Turned out to be a tarpon. My brother immediately comes to where I am and starts getting pictures. He managed a couple nice ones but this one has to be the best. Oh and the guys in the second picture followed us the entire 2 miles offshore and nearly 2 hours of the fight.

Beautiful pics! Congrats on the tarpon (your first?). They had a very strong run this year and we were fortunate enough to have some of the most solid tarpon fishing I've ever experienced on the Northern Gulf.

I really like that first shot. Its nice to have someone with you taking pics, especially if they can get the timing right. My buddy Alan is working on it. Here's his last pic of my last tarpon of the season. Not quite
