Keep Your Tarpon Wet
the law in Florida since 2013 and it's something I've been in favor of for a long time. There is no reason to pull these fish out of the water after fighting them to exhaustion and it's one of the reasons I rarely post tarpon pictures on this blog. (That, and I haven't been landing many so far this year.) But anyway, congrats to Jim from Michigan on landing this fish and just a reminder to use heavy leaders, go full throttle on your drag, and keep these bigger fish in the water if you want to photograph them.
