Tarpon to Sailfish
Tarpon to Sailfish… Can those two amazing trophy fish both be caught is a half day fishing off Miami and Miami Beach. Well, the answer is yes ! Just this past week Capt. Manny was on his way out of the Haulover Park Marina and decided to stop and fish in the Haulover Inlet for a few minutes. The Haulover Inlet is just a few hundred yards away form our dock in the marina. Inlets can hold some great sport game fish like Tarpon, Jack Caravelle, Snook & Barracuda. Thats how you could see Tarpon to Sailfish.
Let's Start with Tarpon
While slow trolling a combination of live bait and rigged natural baits first thing in the morning, Capt. Manny saw a flash of color on the right short bait. Inlet fishing is best on the incoming tide, and that was what we had. With an explosion of water a hole opened up and the right short rod bent over hard. Before you can yell “Fish On” a mirror sided Tarpon leapt up into the air. After a 20 minute hard fought battle we had a 60+ pound tarpon at boat side. After a few quick pictures, the Tarpon was on his way back to the pass to lick it’s wounds.
