No, this is not the way I would recommend handling a tarpon, nor would I recommend bringing one this far in the boat. Not really good for the fish or for whoever is holding the fish if things go bad........but Greg is a big boy and a big man, got to be careful how you handle fish like that and men like Greg :)
Congrats to Greg and Gene for catching the first tarpon of the Pamlico Sound this year. He has some openings if you want to get out after them give us a ring at 252-671-3474 or better yet send an e mail to firstname.lastname@example.org
