Agreed that tarpon are fighters, but I don't eat tarpon, so to me their a waste of time. In New England we would catch barrelfulls of Bluefish in August - edible fighters. An occasional fight with Tuna was always fun, but those were rare, and usually tuna would win.<quoted text>I like telling people I grew up in Fort Lauderdale but the truth is people in Fort Lauderdale don't actually grow up. Back then fishing was a lot better. There were more fish and less rules. For eating my favorite fish is probably a cat fish. Although grouper and snapper are in there real close also. For sport I have a long running feud going with tarpon. I am not sure which of us is ahead. One time I had a tarpon leave me with about 2 ft of line at 3am in the morning with no stores open to buy any more line at. I had to pack up and go home. I guess we know who won that one.@@#@#*&^&*##@ fish.
*lol - "don't 'grow up' in Ft. Lauderdale* How True! I've been to many Spring Breaks that I have only vague recollection.
