Another First Tarpon
Marandi Gills and her dad Greg drove over from Ft. Lauderdale yesterday morning to take a test ride on my Beavertail BT3 and check out the Pine Island fishing at the same time. Both were a big hit, especially for Marandi who landed her first tarpon as well as lots of small snook, a few trout, and one redfish to complete the Grand Slam. We had to work to land all four but persistence pays, especially in the middle of August when the heat and humidity can get brutal like it was yesterday. Great job, guys.
