I start jonesing to tarpon fish this time of year.  Anybody heading to the Keys?


sanjuanwormhatch

sounds difficult and expensive.


flatlander

It's just like blue-lining...only the fish are bigger.

What is your budget for beer?


sanjuanwormhatch

I am ignorant on the amount I spend on beer per year because ignorance is bliss.

In reality I'm scared to drop $1k per day on a guide and then watch myself cast 10' into the wind.


flatlander

$1000 a day?!   It's not that bad.

Tarpunes in the Glades is befuck. Fuck the Islamorada shit. I ain't paying a $1000. Rather put that towards bail and catch baby punes in mangroves with a mix of slapper and snooks. Jus my pref.

I think I would agree here, like the mixed big and would gladly take baby tarpon,  small snooks are fun I can't imagine how much fun the bigger ones are.

Loxahatchee River in Jupiter has Snook,Tarpon and people reguarly fish it on SUP and Kayak. Easy enough DIY.

I ain't here for a long time. I'm here for a good time.

No.  Everyone should have a go at it at least once.  Big tarpon may be the greatest gamefish on earth.
