Adios Andros

John describing the tarpon he hooked

Current temp: 85 wind E10

Current conditions at my house in Montana—-I don’t want to  talk about it.

Well it’s adios Andros tomorrow morning. Really can’t believe how the time has fled.

Pretty exciting action Saturday night at the government dock. John and Bob were both fishing there. Bob was in search of tarpon with this tarpon rig up. John had on a sabiki rig which is small beads with small hooks (#12) and  is rigged to catch bait  fish such as pilchers, shad etc. It is fished  with a jigging motion. He was doing  this when his line went super tight and shot out in the harbor and then this big tarpon comes flying out of the water. He made two great jumps before before becoming unhooked. Bob was standing right nest to John when all this took place  and verified every bit  of it. Amazing, maybe we need to change tactics going after these big boys. But hooking one on a sabiki rig??? This has to be a first and I would  like to hear about it if not.

I hear the Butte , Mt. airport has been closed last  couple  days due to snow. From what I hear and see I don’t tink we have to  worry about snowpack getting to average  any more.
