From my extremely limited perspective, I think it best not to remove tarpon from the water. They seem to put everything they have into a vaulting, berserk attempt to escape. The lactic acid build-up after a long battle must be close to lethal as it is. Recent pictures I've seen are, as Petevicar suggests, taken with the angler and the fish both in the water.
