4/6-4/9/15: Sarasota Action- Couple Tarpons &…Blah

Fishy Jackson, AQUA D

Fishy Jackson awoke from a long hibernation to invade the Gulf Waters but would’ve been better off extending his slumber, as it turned out.  The local ecosystems were dried up and bereft of decent sized baitfish, to the point that the Fishtilian couldn’t even catch a Pinfish bigger than 2 inches.  The Micro scene was desolate consisting of mostly inch long Pins and not much else.  Fishy was forced to berate the local fish with stern, harsh words after a 3 hour fishless beach session and multiple garbage outings at the docks.  AQUA D was none too pleased with the lack of action and had to be talked off the ledge by Fishy multiple times.  The lone bright spot of the trip was the discovery of a local lagoon that appeared to serve as a Tarpon Headquarters.  Lord Jackson hooked a beastly 40+ lb Tarpon that broke off at the water’s edge and later landed a smaller Tarpon after diving half in the water to wrestle it out.
