With their eating fish taken care of yesterday, the guys go tarpon hunting.
We set up at Bahia Honda, as usual, and watched the masses of tarpon rolling all around us. The bite has been tricky this year, but Matt hooked into a nice hundred-pounder, which we chased to the bridge pilings.
Sam hooked a monster that we estimate was in the 150-pound class. Despite his best efforts, the big boy broke Sam off.
Back at the dock, we got a nice picture of Jason and me with our anglers.
