Tarpons are among the most desirable saltwater game fish. They can grow quite large and they put up a huge fight when hooked. If you’ve ever seen a leaping tarpon then you know exactly what I’m talking about.
One of the best destinations in the U.S. to bag a tarpon is in Boca Grande, Florida. The town boasts plenty of guides, charters, and rental equipment for out of town guests looking for a piece of the tarpon action. I hope one day to take my own boat down there, lubed up with Yamalube 2-M, and give tarpon fishing a go.
