I finally landed a monster tarpon in Boca Grande from a dock after losing quite a few over the years. Usually there is not much chance to land a monster fish like this in an urban canal unless the fish cooperates. This one did! After wrapping me around a piling for a while the fish decided he would swim back around it for me. My family happened to be there to video the whole thing. My favorite part of the video is when the fish swims into the snook light. Check it out its pretty cool:
We also caught a few snook shortly after. Here is a picture of one chilling in the middle of the light...

Nice fish and damn good work to haul it in! Your link did not seem to work for some reason, so I went to the site and copied it over.
