Before I auger in, I planned to bring a tarpon to the yak and release her. I'm waiting impatiently for a new yak, thanks to the Jimbo. It's going to be a REAL challenge from a Skua. Hope I can eventually paddle out there with some of you. I don't have the flyfish skill. So, guess it will be artificial or occasionally live bait. We usually have a small window(May-June) when the big boys show up in the Cove here in Vero.
That's almost at my front door. Getting out there will be the trick. The Keys are doable for me. Used to go down there regularly for the SKA tournament in Jan. Spent a couple days in our yaks around Bahia Honda, but the tides and winds were ripping. Need to talk about rigging, etc. with all of you.

I have seen a few strange things with tarpon lately.Three times l have had tarpon take my bait when a motor boat is running over my bait.My bait is deeper than the boat but it  right over the bait.My line takes off like I am caught in the boats prop.They have all seen the fish jump before me.2nd is that I've had schools of tarpon circle me over and over.This has happened in the intercoastal and at the end of Port Everglades jetty.I think they are becoming tame and are looking for hand outs
