We recently posted the start of this tarpon battle and the video had a big response. Now for “the rest of the story.”
From Ted Margo:
“After its initial acrobatics, this fish went deep in about 8 feet of water and would not budge. She quickly chewed through our #50 shock tippet. Ironically, as referenced by my guide John O’Hearn at the end of the clip, we had just been discussing what the best shock tippet is for tournament fishing where landing big fish is required.”
