Hawksley says, “Using only artificials we have been able to land quite a few lunkers this summer and all of them right off Tarpon Bay Beach on Sanibel – no boat or live bait needed. We’ve caught many smaller snook in the canals and passes as well which is a great sign, but the 40-plus inch monsters seem to be out cruising the beaches in droves.”

Rich Santos. “The Jacksonville-St.Augustine big Spring tides during the MidSummer – early Fall seasons bring out the ultra light tackle and sight fishing angler to hunt for tailing redfish, sheepshead & black drum that are gorging themselves on fiddler crabs over the flooded grass flats,” says photographer Santos.

West Coast Tarpon, photo by David Danforth. When you have been out all day, watching the tarpon rolling and bursting into the air all around you, you milk every last ray of sun light in the day to catch just one more,” said Danforth. See more of Danforth’s work at www.relogear.com.
