Tim - if it has gills and lives in the water the poor thing doesn't have a chance of not getting caught by you.

Now, would it hurt to smile for the picture? scared

Nice fish. Did it do a lot of tail walking?

Thanks! Oh yeah. It is really amazing to see a fish that big jumping and tail walking.
I also caught a smaller (25-28 lbs) that jumped a lot more.
Too much fun.

As far as smiling, the guide taking the pict wanted to get the tarpon back in the water. So, that was all I got. cool And no weight. frown he's an easy 30, so I just said 30+. maybe closer to 40+.

Also, these guys are purty cool. Frigates. One came in really close to one of our baits on top of the water.
