Mahi In The Morning And Tarpon In The Evening

Date: 2018-05-14

mahi|dolphin|light tackle fishing After a nice morning of dolphin/mahi fishing, it was time to switch gears and tackle to do an evening tarpon trip. The rainy weather was holding off for almost the entire trip. We made it till 11:30 pm before the rain got us. Denis, Maxime, and Jean-Marc from France had heard and read a lot about tarpon fishing and wanted to experience it for themselves. Once we got to the dusk period, they learned first hand what tarpon fishing is all about. All three anglers tag teamed the first tarpon. Their excitement and enthusiasm brought a really big smile to my face as they were yelling and screaming in French. We had the tarpon boat side several times while they took pictures and video. The second hook up came on the next drift. Just as we were about to get caught up to the fish, the hook pulled. We started seeing a few fish popping bait at the surface as well as marking them on the side scan. The third strike was a solid hook up. After passing the rod off several times, Jean-Marc was on the rod when the tarpon went ballistic at boat side. Several jumps and slamming into the side of the boat was a real show that they captured on video. As they watched the video over and over again, their excitement stayed at the same level each time. We had to run when the rain came, however, it didn't dampen our spirits despite being wet. During the entire ride back to TNT Marine Center they relived their tarpon adventure and were making plans for a future trip.
