Night catch

By Staff | May 18, 2012


Professional fishing guide Capt. George Tunison revives an exhausted 100-pound tarpon boatside before releasing it last Thursday. The 6-foot tarpon was caught on a live ladyfish on a 9/0 circle hook under a balloon at night on the Caloosahatchee River near the Midpoint Bridge. The fish jumped out of the water six times trying to free itself, including one final leap near the boat.
