Too Close Tarpon

Ocean Flat Bone

That photo is the average size on this one particular ocean flat. Not a lot of fish to be found there but all are fairly big. The very best thing about this flat is it  is very easy wading and seldom fished.

We went in search of tarpon and  permit  way up the mouth of the creek. We did find a tarpon but by the time we saw him we were almost right on top of him. He was in this deeper cut and hard to see—-at least  that’s our excuse.

Looks like tomorrow is another day for Hank and I to head out to the buoy to load up on dolphin. Light winds  are predicted so it should be a good trip. After almost getting thrown  out  of the  boat last  year in heavy  seas out there, it’s got to be light wind before I go.


  1. Sweet fish! I hope you marked where he was at so we can pay him a visit. See you in 5 days!

  2. I thought Hank only allowed you to take pictures of the reef fish he catches? When he start chasing bonefish lol.
