8/17/2022 ‘The Bean’ on some juvenile tarpon

Blake and Julie each caught their first Tarpon on light tackle fishing with ‘The Bean’ Capt. Brandon Storin.  Happy half day for those two!  He said bait was easy (pilchards) and there were plenty of snapper to go along with that too.  Juvenile tarpon are lots of fun and to be honest, I prefer catching these little guys to the big brutes.  Though that being said I’ve gotten to catch my share of big ones!  The fall is a great time of year to target smaller tarpon.  They aren’t always a primary target but often in areas where we catch snook or snapper, you’ll find a few milling around.  Bean’s been running my boat the last 2 seasons and doing a great job.  He’ll still be with me next year too.  We’re offering discounted trips for the rest of August and September on the seacraft so drop me a line if you want to go.
