juro That's absolutely a tarpon fishery in fact you should contact our sponsor Old Florida and talk to Christian Mustad who is definitely into fishing the big beaches of Florida for roving tarpon. Since you are a Nautilus owner you might even talk him into coming out on the beach to do some 'field testing' with you.

If it works out let me know I might join you

Miami Beach Tarpon?

I was on the phone with my brother yesterday, who just moved to a condo on Miami Beach. He said he is towards the south end of North Miami Beach (NOBE). He is right on the water on the 34th floor, with virtually a birds eye view. As I'm talking to him, he notices a school/pod of about 30, as he described them, BIG fish just off the beach circling very near a swimmer. Which made him laugh b/c the swimmer clearly had no idea he wasn't swimming alone. His guesstimate is that they were in the 48in - 60in range. He said he often sees sharks and dolphins, but that these were different. Not being a fisherman, he didn't know what they were. My guess is that they're tarpon.

Anyone familiar with this area and whether or not it is a tarpon fishery. If so, anyone heard of anyone targeting these big guys on the fly from shore?
