My Son's Rockport Tarpon

So last Friday morning while I'm at work my 10 year old son Cannon texts and calls me and says "dad you're never going to believe what I caught just now... a Tarpon!"

He fishes all over town and has some cool catches, but this takes the cake. In true fisherman form he made me promise not to tell anyone where he was so i had to crop the picture down pretty tight. Yes he is on land to a fishing location that he walks to regularly.

Of course the fish was released healthy to fight another day!

Good for him! and good for you raising a boy that is interested in exploring & fishing during the summer rather than video games and movies, truly a rare breed nowadays.

by the way, i recognize that tree, the honey hole is safe with me!!!!

tarpon

That is very cool! Congrats to your son! Without given away any secrets, I would be interested to hear more details about this interesting catch like water depth or style of fishing (artificial/bait). Just curious.
