180.0 lb. Tarpon caught by Billfish Sportfishing fishing in Florida on 04/18/06
86.0" / 180.0 lb. Tarpon caught by Billfish Sportfishing fishing on Tuesday April 18, 2006 at 06:30 11.29 km from Islamorada in Monroe County, Florida (FL), United States North America using a Baitfish

A very large tarpon taken on 20 lb. class tackle. This fish was a monster in regards to the battle that it put up. It nearly stripped a PENN 200 Torque after dragging the boat over one mile from where we hooked it up. Standing on a flat.. I was informed that a bull shark was stalking me by Richard Stanczyk who snapped the photo.

It's funny that before I read the bottom of story I said
Man this guy is brave because a wounded fish or man
Will definitely attract sharks....please be careful
I know that he was a trophy size but life is precious.
