Marathon Tarpon Fishing
Tarpon fishing in Marathon is one of the most popular types of fishing in the Florida Keys. In this photo Captain Doug is lifting the tarpon into the boat. I don't know too many captains who have the strength or the courage to do this. I've heard horror stories of putting tarpon into boats. A tarpon can easily destroy everything on a boat with it's immense strength if he decides to starting flopping around. On a normal tarpon fishing trip in Marathon we leave the tarpon in the water. "Doug, what were you thinking?"
