Re: Tarpon: Crabs vs. flies
Good story with a good point Jim! Flys are deadly on Tarpon in most situations and not to use them when you have the opportunity is crazy! There are some situations(cold,high wind and heavy weed line) where the odds are againest you and then its time to make a decision crabs or switch targets. For me Ill take the switch and go to the park and catch Reds and Snook.
As far as bait pinfish and other baitfish are for certain situations with crabs being the best all around bait. With that said at $3.75 a pop for crabs the answer is easy watch the bobber or fly fish . Ill take the latter.
