Costa Rica Tarpon

Tuesday, April 30, 2019

“it’s a horse!!” –that’s what they say when it’s a big one. It was a Giant Tarpon at Silver King Lodge in Costa Rica and when it jumped and landed on the side of the boat it kicked like a horse and seemed as big !!!. Thank goodness it then fell back over the side of the boat and into the water rather than coming on board !!  After a bit more of a tussle and a few awesome jumps and head shakes it was done – unhooked and released. I was pretty well done too !!  I had bowed to the king as they say – over 130 pounds of it !! I was only there because I’d heard about the size and power of the Giant Tarpon and a trip to Silver King Lodge in Costa Rica seemed the way to check it out!! -- so I did it!!. Thanks Angling Adventures – I’ll be back !!
