Tarpon caught by Joe Brown fishing on Friday December 23, 2011 at 22:13 using a plastic minnow a Jerk Bait

Hired a guide to take me and my family fishing from the shore in St. Martin. It's been really windy for the past couple of days and we were fishing midday because we had the kids with us, so conditions were not ideal. But even still, the tarpon were amazing! By my third cast I had a fish on that jumped at least 4 feet in the air. We had at least a dozen bites and maybe 5 jumps (my 8-year old had one jump within 8 feet of her). They have really bony mouths so you can only hook them well if you get them in the middle of the top lip. I'd love to say I landed this one, but our guide got this one. Before we released it, we found a fly hook from another angle set down in its mouth, so we removed it. Our guide kept telling us that this was a small one!
