    Default Lots of 5 to 50# Tarpon in the Sebastian river, Florida right now.

    Took out my little skiff yesterday with a friend Mike, who is a good old East Coast surf caster.

    We found a lot of Tarpon in the river feed on mullet on a big out going tide.

    On a medium size spinning outfit with a DOA TerrorEze lure he hooked a 40-50# Tarpon.

    It was a spectacular fight with 4 big jumps and then it broke off.

    Mike said it was like being in a fishing movie with a big silver fish jumping like crazy.

    A few months back Mike landed a new 10# Tarpon that jumped 8 times.

    Mike is really psyched up now for Tarpon.

    Top local fishing guide Eric Davis commented that May through October was Tarpon time in the Sebastian river.

    He said June/July was the very best time.........


    My friend Mike is still in shock after fighting a wonderful 40-50# Tarpon this week.

    Going out Wednesday with Steve Potter of Tracy, CA to chase Tarpon here in FL.
