Cayo Costa Tarpon
The Gulf waters have been almost flat calm these last few days and that makes chasing tarpon off the beaches a real treat. I watched Capt. Cliff Simer and his anglers hook this beauty on live bait the other day and managed to grab one decent shot before they landed it. There are still a lot of big tarpon cruising up the Gulf but they're sporadic and I'm not getting on the larger schools this season. Fortunately, the juveniles are showing up in good numbers and we'll start to concentrate on them as July gets closer.
