Top Tarpon Catches Ever Fishing Records | Sport Fishing
Credit: Lauren Dunston Place: st george sound Fish: tarpon Weight: 130lbs Caught By: Capt Tucker Strickland My buddy called me one day and said he wanted to see what all the fuss was about. Something about tricking a 150 lb prehistoric fish into eating a hand crafted fly intrigued him. I penciled him into my book when I had a free afternoon and the picture tells the rest. We had four tarpon to the boat in four hours and he was hooked.
Fly fishing for tarpon is one of the biggest challenges in fly fishing. The fish are huge, they jump up to 6 feet in the air, and their mouths are solid bone.
