O.K. I admit it. At times I find myself envious, even jealous of the pro-hunters and fisher folk that made the big time. They get to hunt or own expansive tracts of private ground and hunt the big name ranches. Basically do the things that I dream about doing.
Trapped in a workaday world, an average outdoorsman like myself has to squeeze a busy schedule just to find time to slug it out on the public lands and small tracts of private property that one has been lucky enough to garner permission to enter. I`m sure that many of you out there can relate to this.
That`s one of my reasons for this project. I want to give some insight into the other side of outdoor adventures, the side not often seen in the hunting and fishing shows on the T.V. While we may scrimp and save to charter a boat, or take a guided hunt, I don`t own a big vessel to run around offshore in, or large acres of private land to hunt on.
I`ve been fishing as long as I can remember, and hunting crowded public lands for decades. Long enough to be able to offer some tips and tactics to help those getting started fill the stringer, or perhaps even hang their tag on a nice Tom Turkey, or decent buck come bow season, under the most crowded, high pressure conditions you could imagine.
One of the biggest sportfish you can catch is the Tarpon. Know for fantastic leaps and drag searing runs once hooked, and a battle that will wear out even the hardiest angler, I had wanted to give this leviathan a try. So we booked a trip to fish for them with Captain Matt, a premier Florida Tarpon guide. The trip did not disappoint! After a brutal battle that left me sore for days, I managed to land a 100 pound monster! Join me below as the battle unfolds, and use the link provided to book a trip to try this for yourself!
