    Default Tarpon In The Pamlico Sound

    The cold front must have caught this sucka off guard. Found him Just infront of Clam Shoals.. Saw 3 Dead Sharks off of Kings Point (Buxton Frisco Line).. Water temp droped 15 to 20 degrees after the Front... Gonna take a couple of days to figure it back out.. Would have loved to got that Tarpon on the Yak with trout rod.. Enjoy the Adventure New Garmin Rules....

    JAM,
    That's a shame such a noble beast died such a **** poor death isn't it.
    I have caught a many a one on the other side of Pamlico Sound.......it always felt good to watch them swim away fore they give it everything they got during the fight

    Jam, What do mean "Would've loved to got that Tarpon" All you had to do was pick him up for a picture. You could've had him, you would've had us.....Wink

    Default Just could not bring myself to do it..

    My mind is a terrible thing to waste, and I think about bad ju-ju and stuff.. I will get one out of the YAK all next year will be spent trying I though I have seen them jump in the past.. I did no more thought to it.. I wonder why some folks don't target them.. JAM
