Tarpon fishing Stuart

I was recently in Stuart last week with Jimmy Nelson of Extreme Fishing Adventures TV show.  We met up with Mark Nichols of DOA lures for a morning of fishing.

We hit the water at 6am and worked our way to a marina in search of tarpon.

I wish every day started this way; on my first cast, my terror eyes was greeted by a 40lb-50lb tarpon looking for morning grub.

I had the fish on for a few minutes and things were looking good until the tarpon but she managed to shake free on a jump and throw the lure.  There were fish rolling in the area but after an boring hour of watching tarpon roll and not eat we decided to more on.

Our next location was a brackish water canal which holds smaller tarpon.  We did see some rolling fish but did not see much activity.  While working a rock pile with my terror eyez I was pleasantly surprised to catch this little guys.  I would guess he was about 4-5lbs.

We decided to call it a morning and get out of the heat.  Mark invited us to swing by DOA’s headquarters and show us where the magic happens.
