IGFA World Record Tarpon

Now that we're in the middle of tarpon season in Southwest Florida, here's a photo of one you won't be seeing off Pine Island.
This is the current IGFA all tackle world record that weighs 286 pounds and was caught off the west coast of Africa in 2003.  Yes, we have some big tarpon swimming around in Charlotte Harbor, but not too many like this one.
