More Matlacha Tarpon

It was a busy week but thanks to the flat calm mornings there were tarpon everywhere.  Getting them to eat was a different story.  Two things that worked where Hogy jerkbaits like the one Vic used in the top photo and live pinfish that got Melissa her first tarpon in the bottom picture.  I had anglers throwing flies almost every day with zero success except for a few jumped babies in the creeks.  I'm glad to have this rainy weekend off to forget about tarpon for at least a day.
