I was recently thinking back to April 2013 when my wife and I took a trip down to Marco Island, Florida. I was on a mission to catch a tarpon with my friend Captain Ben Olsen. We fished extremely hard for multiple days and for anyone who thinks tarpon are an easy fish to catch they have another thing coming. We had consistently been on fish but they were not cooperating. Finally, on one of my last days there I hooked up and she was big. After about 45 minutes we got her boat-side and I got to put my hands on her. She probably went around 6 ft and 130 lbs!!! It was a trip of a lifetime….Thanks Ben!!! Here is some jumping footage. Enjoy!
