Had a couple of neighbors (snow birds) that I had been promising to take fishing before they headed back to Canada. Ted and Rose joined me today for a trip to Lake Tarpon and the action was astounding. Rose started the morning off with an 8lb'er, and then a 7.13lb'er, followed by a couple of 3lb'ers. While Ted managed a couple of 3lb'ers today himself. It was so cool seeing Rose, who has never caught a largemouth bass, start off with an 8'lb'er! Here are some pics from today.

Also want to say that with running the recirculating pump, aerator pump, electronics, and trolling motor, that I never lost power and it is all due to my Stay-N-Charge charging system. If you don't have one of these units you're in the dark ages.

I think I can smell a Capt. License coming. Today was a blast and we all had a very good time out on the lake today. Here are some pics...

Wayto go Rose! Wow what a fish for a first ever fish! heck what a fish for ANY fish! lol :clap: You ruined poor rose for life! She will have to move from Canada now to get her largemouth hawg fix lol

Way to go at putting them on the fish Joe! I agree, if you can put folks on fish like that, you need to be guiding. :thumbup01:

Thank you for sharing your report and your wonderful images with us Joe! :cheers:

I guess Florida will have to make room for a few more snow birds if this get out.

Awesome catch for Tarpon, were you drift fishing shiners?
I had them set up with 10" to 14" wild shiners, but we weren't drifting them, I was casting them at specific targets and handing them the rods. Rose took to it like a duck to water. I was impressed with how she set up on them just the way I instructed her to. She was holding the rod at 10 O' Clock and when the cork went down she calmly reeled down to the fish and set the hook. The 8lb'er was the first one to hit and it caught her at first, but she relaxed and allowed the equipment to do the work.

Very nice fish. That report is no different then any other guides posts. Except you are not trying to tell us that Rose caught a 11lber ;)

Oh, I am jealous of the flat water I see in your pictures. I haven't seen flat water like that, well, since last October. The east coast of Florida sure is allot windier then the west coast haha.

Good fishing.

Oh it's been plenty windy, and as a matter of fact I tried to take them to some spots in the main lake but we were getting knocked around too bad. I wound up taking them to a canal in the south end of the lake, and even there it was a PITA to keep the boat straight.
