Hey Juro. I have a reliable inside source tell me that guys are getting tarpon on conventional gear in the surf in Clearwater.

The tarpon should be making their runs down the coasts now. You'll probably find a lot of tarpon if you go onto any of the piers...thing is, they don't allow fly fishing on the pier.

IMO, right now your best bet is Clearwater off the beaches. Last year a friend of mine was on fire with conventional gear, catching tarpon out of the surf. He would nail 4-5 ever few hours!
Take the road less traveled, and you'll be rewarded.

Go Minnesota Vikings!
