Seaway Quick Report Monday 2nd August 2011
Bit of a test fish on Monday night. I wanted to see if I could catch a Tarpon in the evening rather than early morning. Wade came along as he was keen to land his first Tarpon. Never having fished for them in the evening before I wasn't sure how their behaviour would be affected or even if I could find them and they would be eating.
It took alot of casts before Wade finally hooked one on a 65mm squidgy slick rig, unfortunately he lost that fish. Alot more casting followed and Wade finally hooked and landed a Tarpon around the high 50's which hit the plastic on the drop. Unfortunately that was it, we cast and moved around for the next hour or so and didn't get another hit. I had a few hits during the night but no hookups so I ended up with a big fat zero. We fished from 6.30 til about 10.30.
So an interesting night, the conditions were just about perfect if a little bumpy so I don't know why they were so subdued. Just another piece of the puzzle.
