Early Morning is always worth the extra effort


Over the years, I have spent many days chasing fish up and down the East Coast. I can count on one hand how many days have been as calm as this morning spent chasing Tarpon with JMP in the Everglades. Everywhere you could see there were juvenile tarpon- (50lbs-100lbs) rolling in a school as the sun was coming high in the sky. The polar fiber baitfish pattern viewed above was tied on a heavy stout Owner 2/0 hook which allowed it to sink at a faster rate. Immediately after this shot was taken, ole' JMP lipped about an 80lber only to stick it with the leader in the rod tip. I thought this was a cool shot. If you click on it and look right under his left hand you can actually see a fish rolling towards the skiff. For sake of story, I'll say it was the fish that came, we saw, decided to eat, then did eat, and finally said nope don't want nothing to do with you folks leaving us cussin' and shakin' our heads.... ( In my SW PA Slang!). Enjoy...............................


Until Next Time............................................. Get Fishy Hands!
