 Boy did I need this day!  Alec and I got to work in the hunt for tarpon on what the forecast was calling a horrible weather day with 60 plus percent chance of rain and lots of wind.  Alec's reply " I have a rain jacket." Nice!  Turns out the forecast couldn't be more wrong as we had a light west wind. calm conditions and enough cloud cover to make it comfortable.  Actually, overcast, hot, muggy and calm, perfect for tarpon!  They were all over the place and it wasn't long before Alec was on to a 140lber.  After the release he hooked another one about the same size on a lure and then released a 160lber not long after that.  Wow, what a morning.  Changing things up we switched to bonefish where he went 0-3 on big tarpon.  Dang, what a day!
