Silver King Action In Miami, Florida - Late February

Date: 2018-02-26

tarpon|tarpon fishing miami Daniel and Tanis got to experience some great tarpon action as we had good tides to fish in the bay. It took about 10 minutes for the first strike and it was a solid hook up. Daniel caught and released his first tarpon. While we were taking a few boat side pictures, the second strike took place and it also was a solid hook up. The second fish was a bit bigger and Daniel had all he could handle as the fish made several attempts to cut us off on the numerous obstructions in the area. In the end we released that fish also. The next strike has Tanis on the rod and she did an outstanding job of muscling the tarpon away from the pilings. This was her first tarpon also. The action slowed after the third fish and we made a move. The fourth tarpon ran straight through the bridge with us chasing it. We cleared all the pilings and were in open water. It was just a matter of time before Daniel had that tarpon alongside of the boat. However, the tarpon had other thoughts as it got its second wind. It jumped and slammed into the side of the boat and took off again. We won in the end as we released the tarpon. We set back up and had our first miss of the evening. The tarpon got a free snack as it stripped the bait from our hook. Once again the action slowed down and we made a move. This time to the beach outside of Haulover Inlet. On our first drift we hooked the biggest tarpon of the evening. Daniel was on the rod again and Tanis was in charge of the video. After 25 minutes, the tarpon was released at boat side. That's how the evening ended. It was a 5 for 6 night and two very happy first time tarpon anglers.
