Entries in tarpon (60)
Four anglers fishing with Florida captain Justin Moore landed a monster tarpon last week that could have broken the world record. Drew Denick, Ron Joyce, and Jeremy and Jan Tombl chartered a boat with Moore for a day of tarpon fishing on the Gulf of Mexico.
Tarpon was approx. 96-inches long with a 53-inch girth which would put it in the 300 pound range. The current world record is 286 pounds.

The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission voted 4-3 to move forward with new rules that would change the definition of snagging as it relates to tarpon and would limit a specific type of fishing gear in Boca Grande Pass.
