I couldn't wait to try out the Tarpon, so this afternoon I took it out on a small bass pond not far from my house. I netted my first bass of the season, albeit a large mouth which was up in the warming shallows close to shore. However, I am sure I won't be able to keep up with you. You will be reeling in your second striper by the time I catch up to you in the Tarpon. Enjoy the Hobie and full steam ahead!
