2010 Year In Review Part 2

Over the last year several CP customers caught some pretty nice fish on our trips. Here's a few more:
Sean Furlong with a massive Cubera Snapper. This fish was not caught off a reef! It was hooked and landed on Sean's Tarpon rig (and fly) up high on a flat in just a couple of feet of water.
If you've caught decent sized Cubera before you know this thing is awesome! This fish is almost impossible to land on light tackle fly. Lucky for us, and Sean, the old devil made a few mistakes.

Darren Soice with a very nice Florida Keys Permit. And in a cold front too!

Curtis Bartlett with a fairly large Tarpon. Any larger and Curt would be having hernia surgery right now. Note the fatigued grimace on the angler. God, Tarpon are fun!

Caitlin Gifford and a fairly hefty Bonefish. This fish was slightly more hungry than the 20 lb. Permit it was following. Two and a half seconds where the guide and I thought she had caught her first Permit, followed by "f^%$%ing Bonefish". However, this fish is no slouch.
And I got to share a skiff with my kid for a week, not a common occurrence anymore.

Chad Dillabough releasing a very nice Tarpon. Note the width across the back (on the fish, not Chad). This guy is an absolute Tarpon hound. I thought I was bad, Chad is absolutely obsessed!
