Tarpon at Night
My good friend, Chuck Furimsky, flunder and director of the Fly Fishing Shows, had a chance to fish with our mutual pal, Jake Jordan.. The tarpon were hungry and the weather was cooperative. Here’s Jake’s report. If yoou have time on your schedule, get in touch with Jaske. You will have the time of your life.
Chuck hooked, fought, and jumped, a total of 5 tarpon tonight on my poon bug, He wound two Tarpon (both over 100 pounds) to the surface for pictures. After 3 nights (12 hours) of Tarpon fly fishing Chuck had jumped 18 Tarpon while catching and releasing 7 of which 6 were between 100 and 125 pounds.
If anyone wants to catch a few nice Tarpon on fly this season, I have an opening on May 19, and May 22, other than those dates I am sold out for this Tarpon season. It is now time for anyone who is interested in fly fishing for Albies during October and November in North Carolina to contact me for available Dates. I still have some dates available fro Sailfish schools during December of 2012, along with January, February, March of 2013, book your dates now if you are planning to join me as I will be sold out soon. By the way, I love this Job, wish you were here, stay tuned for more reports. Oh yea, Check with me on Alaska dates, there is room for a few more fly anglers to join me this September at Icy Bay Lodge for big Silvers on fly, along with Giant Rainbows at Troutfitters.
