Default 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.
It's sick really
