1/17/20 Some big january everglades tarpon around the last couple days!

Yesterday we found a big school of tarpon in the everglades with the warm, calm weather.  Angler Mark Gregg caught about a 140 lber on light gear.  Almost got eaten by a huge shark but it got away!  We caught it all on video which you can watch below!  We also got about a 60 lb tarpon today for Gentry.  But winds are suppose to kick up to 30 mph tomorrow, and a cold front coming dropping temps into the 50s, so the tarpon thing will likely shut down again.  But I expect a good early season again like last year come February.
