Hey All,

I just found the Texas Tarpon website and was overjoyed to find the conservation and tagging efforts that are currently manifesting in the Lone Star State: Let's get our Tarpon Back!
That said, I have to say I managed to hook my first Tarpon off Bob Hall Pier Monday July 30 at 11:30 at night. It was absolutely epic, the big brute ran out about 250 yards and almost spooled me before I turned it. I could feel the 6'+ jumping out there in the moonlight. I finally got in under near the lights and it threw the hook for a perfect release. I know I'll be telling my kids this story one day, therefore I am committing myself to conservation efforts for this species.
I hope to fish the upcoming tournament in Port O'Conner, I do have a seaworthy boat if the water is calm but have purchased it very recently and am but a novice driving a boat, but a hell of a little fisherman. If anyone is looking for a partner for the tourney, please let me know,
thanks,
Nathan Harwell

Welcome aboard. Congrats on the catch and "release". You wouldn't happen to know some guy named Alan Harwell?

congrats on the catch!

The tourney in POC should be a good one, I haven't committed yet due to waiting on the opportunity to fill an open weekend

Congratulations.... I guess. You are now guthooked just like the rest of the guys on this board. You will spend lots of time and money but you will not be able to throw this hook.

The line will probably lead you to Louisana, Florida, and Costa Rica.

Welcome aboard.

TC
