Sometimes tarpon are caught in very shallow water. This tarpon was hooked and landed near a beach south of Boca Grande Pass. I don't agree with towing a tarpon to the beach for a picture. It must be landed where the photo is taken for my customers to get a in water photo.
We landed this tarpon while fishing a shallow flat in Pine Island Sound.
