Tarpon fishing at Boca Grande with the Ladies PTTS 2011 and time lapse video
Saturday I was down in Boca Grande while they had the Women’s pro tarpon tournament underway. I hopped on Capt. Justin Cauffman and put a time lapse camera on Capt. Chad Manning’s boat to capture some images.
The Tarpon season is full swing down in Boca and the bite as been good. The weather today was excellent with out a cloud in the sky. The boat I was on ended up hooking 4 fish and all but the last fish came unbutton one way or another.
This was ok however, because the last fish caught on the bottom of the 9th ended up weighing in at 208lbs. This edge out team Hooter’s boat that weigh in at 193lbs and won the 10,000.00 grand prize. I believe this was the first time I’ve been on a boat that actually landed at Tarpon over 200lbs.
This is 3 hours condensed into a 3 minute video.
Video Note: I used the Drift170hd with a suction cup mount to take photos every 5 second.
