Tarpon, Hobe Sound, photo by Ryan Nitz. “This shot is from Hobe Sound in the summer. A nice rain came through and that afternoon I was wading in a spot I usually don’t catch anything too crazy, but the scenery is good and the main reason I go there. I was throwing a small SkitterWalk and this tarpon came flying out of the water, must’ve jumped 10 feet when he first felt the hook. I was almost in shock!! After a 20-minute fight on my 2500 Stradic I took some quick pictures and released the tarpon. As I followed him out to deeper water he took one final breath before he was gone and I captured it on the GoPro!
