First ever tarpon fight was memorable

September 22, 2010 was the date when after a lifetime of saltwater fishing in the Charleston area, I was finally able to catch my first ever tarpon in the Lowcountry Outdoors. I was pre-fishing with Fred Bricketto, for the Lowcountry Redfish Cup, when we elected to try for a tarpon. The mature tarpon fought well that evening and with the moon full, we were bathed in moonlight during the culmination of the encounter. To read my full story, entitled Bull's Bay Tarpon By Moonlight in the Charleston Mercury newspaper, click here.
