Jim S from Texas brought his two boys out fishing while in town for some baseball games. Although not big fish, his sons were catching all the fish and dad had nothing. Jim was casting a DOA Bait Buster at the few rolling Tarpon that we were seeing. After a hundred cast or so, he finally hooked up to a large 100 pound plus tarpon, probably weighed 110 pounds. There were many boats in the area also fishing and hoping for tarpon and all appeared to be using live bait or dead bait on the bottom. Jim’s tarpon was the only tarpon that we saw hooked up and probably the only guy throwing an artificial lure.
Here are a few pictures of his tarpon.
