She beat the tarpon!

Capt. Mo Estevez
May 14, 2022
Miami - Saltwater Fishing Report

Emily and Chris from Oregon wanted to try tarpon fishing. I told them it's been a tough season with slim pickings during the day but we went for it. With the calm conditions I had a feeling they would be in a spot where they have rarely been this season so off we went. A short run later we got to the spot and there they were, rolling here and there. We set up and had two baits out but soon after Emily hooks up and after a tough but efficient fisht, she got her big tarpon to the boat. I grabbed the leader for the official release and then the tarpon surged and dashed to the back of the boat as a 400lb bull shark tried to eat it. I hit the throttle and broke off the tarpon and ran circles in order to scare the shark. It worked as the tarpon swam away with no sign of the shark. Whew, close call. We wrapped up the trip fishing a bridge for tarpon but they refused to eat.
