Tough time for tarpon

posted in: Bahia Honda, Tarpon 0

But these anglers were real troopers!

Relentless rain and wind for three days took its toll on the tarpon population at Bahia Honda Bridge.  They most likely moved out to the reef, but will certainly be back when the sun and calmer conditions return on Thursday.

Despite the raining and blowing conditions, Robin hooked into a big, 140-pound class fish that gave him a 15-minute fight before breaking off on one of the bridge pilings.

The crew enjoyed the sight of the tarpon’s acrobatics and the fight so much, they’re giving it another try on Friday morning, so stay tuned.

Anglers: Robin and Deann Turner, from Gatlinburg TN, Ron and Jennifer Mossotti, from Lexington KY

Charter Type: Tarpon

Fishing Venue: Bahia Honda Bridge

Species Caught: 140-pound tarpon (hooked, but not landed)
