My brother is in town this weekend and he wanted to get on some of these wintertime tarpon I've been telling him about... so we did. The strong incoming tide was a good producer just like the day before. I went 2 for 6 with the estimated weights ranging between 12 lbs and 50 lbs. We also caught quite a few snook between the two of us... probably 6 decent ones released and another 8 or so lost into the pilings or with pulled hooks. I still can't get over how pictures make the fish look so much smaller than they are in real life. I was taking a picture of one of the snook with my brother and comparing the picture to real life it just doesn't make sense. We need to hold our arms out further I think LOL. It could be a coincidence but the new hooks I've been using have been great at hooking up with tarpon but seem to pull easier with snook. Time will tell. Water temp warmed to 69 up from 65 degrees 24 hours earlier.
