KBYC Working Man’s Tarpon Tournament

Last week Jiangang, Jayce and I participated in Ha Ha’s Key Biscayne Yacht Club’s Working Man’s Tarpon Tournament Wednesday to Friday night. Its a catch and release tournament with lines in at 6:15 pm and out by 8:30. Timing was perfect with an outgoing tide at sunset and protection from the heavy 15 knot ESE winds we’ve had all week. Each night there was lots of action but unfortunately we were not able to get any larger fish close enough to a boat to tag. On Friday night, Jayce put in an epic battle with a hundred lb fish for over a hour and a half before the hook snapped. Better luck next year…
