Reason #10 to make tarpon a Federal gamefish 

We won't be reading about dudes killing fish so they can get their name on a plaque somewhere in the IGFA hall of fame.

Veteran fly-fisherman Tom Evans of Wilson, Wyo., caught a potential 12-pound tippet world record tarpon of 194.1 pounds on May 10.

Evans carries an official scale on every trip for record pursuits.


Bonefish & Tarpon Trust believes that making Atlantic tarpon (Megalops atlanticus), the “Silver King”, a Federal gamefish, is necessary to conserve tarpon for the recreational, economic and environmental benefit of present and future generations of Americans.
