Link Man! How to catch Tarpon!



Geez--- never caught one! But would sure like to give them a try on a fly rod! But out of maybe a 20 foot skiff or something! They must not have any teeth or sharp spines, eh?

What do you think Sharps--- a little 7 foot Leonard flea rod and a 6X tip?

Whew! I'm tired just watching the vid! Best---- JoeW;)

bass or bass?

I used to fish for them with a heavy Garcia Conolon fly rod with a Pflueger Medalist 1498 reel and GAAF floating line, 200 yards of 20 pound test backing, and a big (4") white streamer fly.


It's one of those fish that is no good to eat but is great to catch.
The gill plates are the problem on these, wire leaders are the answer to the gill plates.

I used to use pin fish with a circle hook or big white 4 or 6 inch swim baits never used a fly rod although its defently on the ole bucket list as Iv'e seen them caught on the TV and looks like a hoot!,one of the best fighting fish I've ever sunk a hook into!!!
