Fished in my kayak about a half mile outside 2004 bridge toward the bay. I beached the kayak on a point by the channel and caught some finger mullet in my castnet to use for bait. Ended up catching 1 26 inch red, four keeper trout, and 7 or 8 huge gaftop. Kept the reds and trout and let the gaftop go. Highlight of the trip was hooking into a 30 or 40 pound tarpon. He jumped once and I fought him for 10 minutes or so before he decided to head for West Bay. In hindsight I should have jumped in my kayak and let for take me for a ride but I think I was still in shock that I hooked a tarpon. What a thrill to fight. It took me awhile to settle down after that. What a blast.
