More Tarpon Shots From Matlacha
Len and Brian Favara were out with me again today and put a hurting on some juveniles on the flats and near the island. The best fish was Brian's thirty pounder pictured in the above photo. These fish were caught on 20# Power Pro braid and landed in just a few minutes. With the water temps in the mid to upper 80s right now it's important to bring them in quickly and get them back in the water after a photo. Tarpon are great survivors if they're handled like this. These guys will be here for another two months at least so don't be afraid to pull hard on them, you'll get plenty of shots.
