Had a chance to be the guest today on a friend’s flats boat and decided to get one more tarpon trip in before I head to the Bahamas.
The tarpon were all cruising in single file, quickly to the south all morning. Did not even get a cast at a fish. After a few hours we decided to pack it in and head back to the Venice Jetties.
Just as we got to the Venice Public Beach, we spotted a fairly large pod of tarpon doing the “happy dance”. We easilly got set up on them and on the second cast with a crab, blammo ! The fish went ballistic and spent more time in the air than the water I think. He put on the best show of any of the tarpon we have caught this year.
Here is a link to the video:

Be safe everyone !!
