Description

Most Dangerous Style Of Tarpon Fishing.
Windy with tide versus wind. Night time. Sharks. Big Tarpon. Kayak. Ripping outgoing tide. Solo.
Missed the two day weather window due to boat fishing, so wanted to get back on the Tarpon after going 2 for 4 a few days before. The conditions were shit, but I had the time so sucked it up and headed out. The one good thing was that there was not going to be anyone else out there. That was for sure. Took three hours to catch three Mullet and it turned out to be a Hogy swimbait night. I had caught them the previous time by slow trolling the Mullet around, but the tide differential after a few days made the slowing tide way later. I was caught in the middle so I ended up anchoring and throwing Hogy's for the most action. Got sharked on my longest fight which I did leader, but never got an opportunity to do much with it as it got quickly devoured. The rest were brief hook ups and smashes. Fun night but a bit risky. Will be back out when it calms a bit.
