This fish gave us multiple shots and refusals...only after changing to a spawning shrimp did it come home.
Sunning and swimming on the beach when a posse of tarpon cruised in. I stayed still in the water while Johnny ran for the rods....cast and caught this fish on a home tied surface fly.
On his way
In our year here I have hardly ever put the rod down, and after this encounter on my first snorkel expedition six months into it I wonder why. Me in the midst of a sardine storm. Big Bar Jacks and Cuda busting them up.
