BIG TARPON OFF SATELLITE BEACH

Multiple LARGE tarpon were slamming everything at Satellite Beach today. I even had them steal small catches off my pompano rigs before I could get them in. TWICE they took off and went aerial with my rigs!

I had two chances free lining baits within 10 feet of the water line. Unfortunately both times I couldn’t get a hook up. Other catches included ladyfish and a mystery (to me) fish. Looks like a sheepshead without the stripes?

    That’s awesome. Too bad you couldn’t connect, but it’s always cool having an unexpected surprise add some extra excitement to the trip. If I had to guess blindly, your mystery fish is probably a margate.

    JC you called it. It was a margate indeed. Went back Monday and they were ravenous!

      Nice! I only seem to ever catch them along the reef in Satellite Beach… never see them further south, e.g., Melbourne Beach.
