When my buddy caught it he did not know what it was. It was headed to our bait well to be used for crab trap bait or cut bait. He sent me the picture asking what it was. It was quickly released. This year there have been some unusual catches. They have been catching pomano at pine gully park and now tarpon in a cast net in a ditch.
We got a 10" tarpon in the cast net back in October or so, in Galveston. This is definitely a first for me, and I've been throwing the net for about 30 years. We got it in a spot that seems to be a nursery for all kinds of fish on the back side of Galveston. It's also my number 1 bait spot. We released it.
