Weekends Off Cayo Costa

Even though the big tarpon are still out there, this is why I avoid fishing the gulf beaches on the weekend.  I have to admit that the anglers on this skiff played it very cool.  If this had happened down in the Keys my photo would have been used as evidence in an attempted murder trial.  Fortunately, the tarpon off Pine Island are more tolerant of boat and jet ski traffic but I still avoid the beaches like the plague on the weekend.  I'll stick to the baby tarpon off Matlacha on Saturdays and Sundays right now.
