John is from North Carolina. He was down here doing a job, since it was his birthday and always wanting to catch a Tarpon he decided to do a fishing trip. With the Mullet run in full force, he could not have picked a better time. We met up at the Inlet Marina in the morning. We headed south of the Sebastian Inlet in search of the silver king. We found a few in a small schools and had a couple of hook ups with a couple of jumps. Also a lot of sharks just taking our tackle.
The Tarpon disappeared and it was time continue our search. Well good thing we kept moving down the beach. Because about another 3 miles south and we came across a huge school of Mullet with hundreds of Tarpon. We stayed with them for about an hour or so jumping and losing a few more until finally John got a hook to stick. It was a awesome sight, the Tarpon jumped with in a few feet of the boat right when John hooked up. Then it when on a huge long fast run. It eventually jumped a couple more times and with the hook still in place I knew there was a good chance that we had this one. After 30 minutes of fighting the fish finally came to the boat. We took some great pics and safely released it. John , it was a true pleasure to meet and fish with you. Thanks again for fishing with me. Hopefully we will do it again in the future. Happy Birthday!
