Poons arrive early?

poon-release.jpg Just saw another report indicating that many tarpon are being spotted just offshore in the Everglades — about a month or so earlier than they normally appear in numbers. Soon it’ll be time to tangle with one of the big silver streaks. Most of my tarpon have come serendipitously while targeting snook and reds. This year I may devote a trip or two to poons alone…and especially to my goal of taking a large, “sleeping” tarpon in a quiet back bay on a fly rod.
