Boca Grande Goliath

Post by flcracker »

Not my fish - we watched a guy fight this monster for over a half hour on the beach at the Gasparilla lighthouse yesterday. Quick pic, then a successful release complete with a face-filling splash of the tail.

They had a local guide with them who had paddled the bait way offshore with a kayak, out to the channel dropoff where the tournament boats fish for tarpon. He had several hundred yards of line out when it hit.
