4/3/11 Great islamorada tarpon fishing with Greg Olsen + fam

Postby syxx » Sun Apr 03, 2011 8:25 pm

Capt. Rick Stanczyk had the pleasure of fishing former catcher of the Atlanta Braves, Greg Olsen and family Robbie & Racheal, today on 4/3/11. It was a beautiful day started out fairly calm with a light breeze and flat water. We ran in the backcountry and fished a bay area catching a mix of ladyfish, trout, snapper, and a few small sharks. We anchored up for a bit and netted some ballyhoo for some bigger ladies and snappers as well. The kids had a blast doing this and so did Greg! We saved some stuff for bait and moved off in search of larger fish, as Racheal really wanted to see a big shark and Robbie was dying to catch a tarpon! We anchored up at one of my favorite spots, and almost instantly Greg hooked a huge tarpon! Unfortunately he jumped him off with a little too ambitious hook set, but got a good jump out of him anyhow! We then caught two unknown 'sea monsters' that drug us around a little bit, Robbie fought one entirely on his own that we leadered and released. We caught a few sharks there, some blacktips and one nurse. Had one other tarpon bite we missed that almost jumped in the boat, then Robbie hooked one himself - a big 120 lb tarpon! We fought him for about 30 minutes and had him hooked perfect with the circle hook, got a good picture of him, and released him! The east wind picked up a bit, but tarpon were busting everywhere on the in tide which was great to see after a nasty front came through a few days earlier! Great day on this Florida Fishing Charter for the Olsen family with Capt. Rick Stanczyk!
