I am not sure how many Anglers in the world, if any, have landed a Tarpon, Snook & Roosterfish Inshore Slam on the same day. Well yesterday aboard GOOD DAY whilst fishing in Costa Rica we came pretty close!
We caught the Rooster, lost a 15-20lb Snook after a few jumps which threw the surface lure we had been casting and then we hooked into an est. 40-50lb Tarpon! Paul was fighting the Tarpon which was jumping super close to the boat before it finally did what Tarpon do best and threw the hook, damn! Our first Pacific caught Tarpon was on 27 November 2019 and our second encounter yesterday was exactly a month later on 27 December!
It was one of those days for sure, we had some great opportunities both on conventional and whilst Fly Fishing but our results did not reflect the lost opportunities. A nice fish lost on the Fly and a couple of small ones caught.
Always learning & always enjoying!
