Nice fish - could be a cousin

We were fishing the same side of the island but way up by Barraterre. Chatting to a few of the locals it seems that there are Tarpon on that side pretty much year round and there are some big ones too. Abby has come across schools of real baby tarpon of about 5lb hanging out in some of the inside ponds. The Permit stayed tight lipped for us too! Abby has had several for his clients including one of 40lb the week before we got there. They all hit gotchas - go figure!

Sully, I'm hoping that President John "Striblue" Morin will present me with my CAC initiates Fez this season - my attempts to purloin one from a Shriner at the Wilmington show having met with failure
When sight fishing, look over your shoulder from time to time, you never know who's behind you
