the law in Florida since 2013 and it's something I've been in favor of for a long time. There is no reason to pull these fish out of the water after fighting them to exhaustion and it's one of the reasons I rarely post tarpon pictures on this blog. (That, and I haven't been landing many so far this year.) But anyway, congrats to Jim from Michigan on landing this fish and just a reminder to use heavy leaders, go full throttle on your drag, and keep these bigger fish in the water if you want to photograph them.

Stop by the Matlacha Community Park this Saturday from 10AM to 6PM for the annual Wounded Warrior Anglers Redfish Shootout. While you're there you can check out a handful of brand new Beavertail Skiffs, including the awesomely fast Lightning featured in the video above. This is also the WWA's current 2016 raffle boat and you can buy tickets to win it at their drawing on November 12th. I'll be hanging out with Beavertail's owners Will and Elizabeth Leslie to answer any questions you might have about the skiffs and the fishing around Pine Island. The weather looks great and this is always a good time. Hope to see you there.
