River Tarpon Return

The tarpon have just shown up inside the Indian River Lagoon.  Capt. Peter and Justin Stumpfhauser spent an afternoon sightfishing schools of them this past week.  They were able to get five to eat, with Justin landing his first – Congrats Justin!  The fish were not rolling much, but were holding near the surface in tightly packed schools.  Most of these tarpon have been laying-up on the surface, and readily responding to a well placed bait.  Fishing for these smaller fish (up to 50 pounds) is a ton of fun, and is done on calm waters in a peaceful atmosphere – unlike fishing in passes or off of the beaches.
