Re: Giant Tarpon amongst IGFA hopefuls
Out our way people fish for blue fin tuna with the fly rod
While "schoolie" sized fish are normally 20-100 lb. the all tackle record is nearly 1500 lb, or 5 times larger than a record tarpon.
Due to their incredible value on the Japanese market, blue fins are rarely released and many "anglers" fish for them just to make their boat payments.
