Fishing for Tarpon
The fish are such great fighters and there is such great sport in angling for them, that a number of tarpon clubs have been formed, and these clubs regulate the strength of tackle that may be used by the members. They require the use of very light tackle, and prizes are given for the record fish.
Tarpon are fished for mostly in the morning, but are also taken on moonlight nights. They are caught with mullet bait. They are taken mostly by trolling the outfit at about 75 or 100 feet behind the boat. A good boatman is a necessity.
