Catching this tarpon required wading out through large and actively feeding sharks to get my bait out far enough. Before landing this one, two larger tarpon had completely emptied my reel of line without even slowing down. I walked this guy around out in the water until he recoverd, and then quickly ran back to my car, changed into my clericals, and made it for a 7PM meeting I had that night. Did I mention that it was my birthday? Oh, and despite questions to the contrary, I am wearing a bathing suit.
