Tarpon Country

Went to an area today that produces some nice fish at times up around Goodland. Tarpon are there sometimes along with snook and reds. It's still very hot out so it was to be an early launch just after 6am and fish till late morning. We went directly to a spot that usually holds snook and it didn't disappoint. After a couple of snook I hook up with a perfect size tarpon to catch out of a kayak (25/30lbs) and have a nice fight on my hands. After maybe 10 minutes I land the fish, took a couple of pics and released him. After that nice catch, tarpon seemed to be rolling all around us and not long after Mike hooks up with one around the same size and catches his first tarpon! After getting a nice sleigh ride around the area he landed his prize fish. Venturing around after releasing that fish a few more snook were caught. I had a large one around 36" throw the hook at the boat. Winds picked up and the tide changed so we called it around 11.
