Went to Bahia Honda tarpon fishing with my dad and brother a few weeks ago. Here's a video of a big ole hammerhead putting the chomp down on a tarpon I was fighting. The real action is at the last 10 seconds of the video.

great video, but when sharks show up- you owe it to the fish to cut the line

Yep, sharks, seals and sea lions can really be a nuisance on a fishing trip. I wanted to put a bullet into a few sea lions that kept stealing our hooked king salmon a few weeks ago.

Were you guys able to get any tarpon to the boat for release?

I will be chasing them next month on vacation. Can't wait.

We were able to get one to the boat. Another broke a hook and a few pulled loose. Lost one to shark. The wind was blowing 25+ the day we went. It was rough. Captain Kevin Grubb was who we went with and he was a cool guy. We hooked up more than anyone else out there by far. Two days later my 9 year old son hooked a big tarpon while we were fishing off of a bridge on a rod I usually fish for smallmouth with. That was comical to say the least.

Tarpon are so very addictive. Once you catch one you are hooked for life.
