Guest Report: Collin Ross, Tarpon

7/30/2010 : Guest Report by Collin Ross, Florida  Keys

I was able to sneak out with some ‘ol time buddies a few weeks back. The three of us had literally not fished together in over 5 years, yet we all fish rather hard this time of year but our days never seem to collide. It was one of those days with lots of clouds and deep blue skies…………if that in fact makes any sense at all. The intermittent cloud cover did put a damper on most of our day but when the sun peeked through we made due with the shots that were offered.

Naturally in the process of sharing war stories of days since gone……………………………we got a few tugs.

they were belly floppin sombitches…………………….

gill rattling sombitches………………………………..

tail walkin sombitches……………………………………..

fly spittin sombitches………………………………..

and some real beautiful neck breakin sombitches………….

Even caught a great white…………..

tarpon in the head, tarpon in the da hand………………

Captain T’s last tarpon trip of the year………

It was great to spend a leisurely day on the skiff catching up on old times pondering what the future might bring for three very different dudes with many passions in common.

Life ain’t half bad in these parts…………..
