Tarpon are on!

After having a great fish but challenging for sooty gunter, we tried fishing our local tarpon spot. Before we went, the Townsville Childrens Fishing Challenge was held off Pallarenda. I am not sure how many children fished but basically there were over 300 plus. The area off Pallarenda beach was thick with young kids having a go!. An amazing event and again well organised by Trevor Fuller and his crew.

After a great morning and then watching Ford smash Holden on the Mountain we decided to finish the day with a quite fish. We arrived at our spot and noticed the Tarpon moving straight away. We both landed tarpon within the first minute! Thankfully this time the fish kept going and by the end, an hour later, we landed about 20 fish between us. Liam landed the most and probably the most difficult. He had to cast between two trees plus a tree behind him and in front. He missed the first shot but landed the fish on the second! Well done!
