I launched around 6am 7/3. Fishing the oyster bars towards the pass caught 3 average size snook and a couple of other fish species throwing topwaters. Had a few other hit and misses. I ended up working my way to where I can usually find tarpon and as soon as I arrive I see a tarpon free jump. I cast and hook up with around a 50+ lb'er. After peeling off around a hundred yards and giving me a little ride it makes it's first jump and headshake and throws my plug. That was the excitement for the morning ! There were rollers around me but couldn't get a hookup again. I called it around noon.
