Just ticking the box

It still is the number one fish in the Florida Keys that guys on fishing holidays want to catch a big tarpon. Well this weeks guys have done very well I still don’t think Geoff and Simon know just how well for both guys to play fish for over 3 hrs and get near 200 lb tarpon to the boat. For poor Robin this tarpon fishing had become a spectator sport his two fish had found the concrete very soon so off we went to put this right. Normal start and this week the tarpon have been on fire so very soon it was fish on. Well at last Robin had a well behaved fish on very soon we were in clear water and the other two were joking about a 3 hr fight. In all fairness I don’t think Robin wanted to join the club and a normal fish would be just fine. Well as the daylight came with a spectacular Florida Keys sunrise the fish was beat and at well under an hour Robins dreams had been answered.

We lost this fish at the tape but and honest 100 lb maybe 120 lb but job done and three very happy tarpon anglers. I still find it hard to believe that these magnificent fish have been doing this since prehistoric times well before any man even existed let alone fished. So much more has gone on this week two fish have even jumped into the boat as I have a week of next week lots of time to blog.
