I have had catching a tarpon on my bucket list a long time. I tried in earnest in '05 a couple of times. The Thursday before Katrina, I was catching some world class Gafftop under the L&N bridge.....no tarpon though. the water was already up. knocked off my all around light going under 11.
I caught a baby one in the Biloxi marsh years ago. I thought I was on them in Pontchartrain a few years back, but when I got the the commotion, it was big arse gars.
Tarpon Tom used to post a lot about them. But is not as active now I don't think.
Anyway lets find them and catch them. I know you can catch them in west bay in the late summer. I want to catch them in Pontchartrain or Grand Isle or Timbalier. If I have to, I will trailer down in August but I sure would like to catch them closer.
Anybody on the OB an expert and willing to share?
