    Finally my florida fish in the boat!!!

    Hi Guys

    I just rapped up my fishing trip in Daytona. I tried a couple of months ago but had to return home early due to some work issues.

    Well, let me tell ya, this was a trip to remember!

    My first Tarpon.



    130 pounds, fantastic!

    We landed 6 on the boat. My buddies fish!



    We had a 180 pounder on the line got it to the boat a couple of times. It ran off and finally when we thought we had him beat it broke the hook.

    Fantastic weekend with alot of good fishing stories.




    See everyone soon in Waco, I can't make the mod meet on the 10th but will be in Waco for sure.

    Ray

    It sure would. Giant fish, all catch and release unless you have a tag to bring one in!

    I especially like it when they jump out of the water. Amazing.

    Yes, we were hoping for a 200+ pounder. We had a 180 pounder to the boat but it broke the hook after an hour long fight.

    THanks Guys

    It really was a great time. Going to go again next year for sure! Worth every penny.

    Maybe I can land the 200 pounder then!
