Just got back to Houston from Anegada. I hope your fishing was better than ours. We had big winds and big seas most days, with very sandy water. All in all terrible conditions on the north side for...

One other thing that I should mention: I would probably not plan a trip to Anegada solely for tarpon. I think that encountering them is very iffy. We have been quite lucky the past couple of months,...

Tarpon!

Video at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UcJ6UQPcf1c

The dark spot is a bait ball. You can see tarpon between me and the bait ball.
