A series of firsts for family from Canada

Their first Florida Keys vacation.  Their first tarpon fishing experience.  Her first saltwater fish.

Visiting all the way from Connaught in northern Ontario Canada, Don and Mona McKinnon and their lovely girls, Madison and Abbygale, chose Tranquility Bay Resort for a family getaway filled with sun and fun. 

Don has fished a great deal in Central and South America and has caught more marlin and sailfish than he can count.  But, he had never experienced tarpon fishing.  So, the timing was perfect for their trip with Jason and me.

The tarpon bite at Bahia Honda has been off the charts, and we were not disappointed this evening.  Don and Mona went prospecting for silver and struck gold!  Don landed three tarpon and Mona landed one – her first ever ocean fish! 

The first two tarpon were in the 70-pound class, but the third was a monster 130-pounder that gave Don a long and valiant fight.

All fish were leadered and released. 

We have at least another month to take advantage of the consistent tarpon bite for big fish, so book your charter today!
