Tarpon In The Boat

I don't post a lot of tarpon photos because I just don't take a lot of tarpon photos.  Once my anglers get a solid hookup I can count on at least 10 to 60 minutes of barely controlled chaos on the boat, depending on how big the fish it.  During that time, my cameras are the last thing on my mind.  Getting some nice shots of this beautiful 3-footer from this morning off Pine Island was a real bonus.  My angler whipped this guy in just a few minutes on 20lb spinning gear and got to pose for a pics before sending it back to rejoin the school.
