One of the best places to catch a tarpon is under the fish cleaning table when the days catch is being filleted. Tarpon are very opportunistic feeders and are usually not far away. They are ready to engulf the entrails being discarded and dropped into the water below the table. Once hooked these fish will put on quite a show leaping into the air and doing summersaults for all to see. Landing these fish is another matter though as their bony mouth structure lends to pulled hooks. Also maneuvering around docked boats and pilings can be a nightmare! All in all great fun as these fish were going to be released anyway.
