40 lb. Tarpon Release

Here’s Capt. Rich releasing about a 40 lb. Tarpon in the backcountry.  Believe it or not we actually think this size Tarpon is the most fun to catch because of their acrobatic jumps.  Most of the time we use about an 8 weight fly rod or 10 lb. light tackle spinning rod to catch this size fish to give us more of a challenge.  Tarpon of this size can be found in the Miami and South Florida area pretty much all year long.  If you would like to inquire about booking a fishing trip for Tarpon give a shout.
