Big Winds And Small Tarpon
Blowing like hell out there all day but at least it was from the southeast. That means the wind and sun is to our back and makes sight fishing a lot easier. The few tarpon I've landed recently have been juvenile fish, like the ten pounder in the photo above. My angler popped this one from the shoreline on a pinfish pattern and it involved a lot of blind casting to make that happen. The small tarpon are here in full force and that's great news. They usually don't show up until mid-summer so thing are looking great for the entire season so far.
