Default Kayak wars recored monster tarpon

I got out last night to catch the silver king. It was slow at first then the bite quickly heated up as I was looking around I see a monster poon surface I made a perfect cast on it and it inhales my bait and takes off, the big tarpon jumped 8 times! I thought for sure he was going to break my leader or throw my hook but it doesn’t happen and after all the jumps he pulls me way way far away from where I hooked him and after a tug O war from HELL that seems like to go on for a eternity I get the fish up. The weight of the fish almost flips my outback more than once as I was trying to get a picture with it. What crazy ride this fish was to say the least!!! I was beyond worn out.

Awesome Fish!

I'll bet he outweighs you by a few pounds.

Did you get the length?

Congratulations!
