Good post, yes that is what I always thought tarpon fishing was like. Good description. Well at least it is warm no waders or any walking and wading required in frigid rivers like us steelheaders have to endure. I don't think I would want to use my steelhead rods for tarpon though. 7/8/9 weights but would want at least a 10 weight even for the baby tarpon, just in case I hooked into a bigger one.
P.S. Woke up at 3 AM couldn't sleep went down stairs to get something to drink, saw the computer on, (teenage sons!!), and decided to see if I would have the forumn all to myself, you know how we all wish for our favorite pool or run as you arrive at the fishing locations, well there was one other member on but no visitors. Can't even cyber FF in solitude any more.
