did I say the tarpon bite was consistent?

 I guess it is consistent tarpon fishing for 15 of the best NC tarpon boats fishing/looking for nearly 10 hours and NO ONE saw a fish.   Two days before there were at least a dozen tarpon hooked by a handful of boats and expectations were high for this tournament.  

We had even invited a tarpon scientist to come take samples of our plentiful fish.   At the end of the day, we apologized for the sorry fishing, but as Lucas replied, that's just tarpon fishing anywhere in the world.   

Some days they just don't do it.  But that's what makes them so special and why we are so mad at them. 

For me, it was a pleasure to fish with two legends, Capt. Rick Caton and Mr. Tarpon himself, Phillip  Ambler, aka Ms. Sharon.
