Best Fishing Tips Of The Week: Salt Strong Newsletter (July 14, 2019)


It’s newsletter time!

Imagine you’re on the beach, you’re breathing in the salty ocean air, listening to the birds and waves play their happy tunes, and you hear something else…

Is that…?

Can it be…?

It is!

Your drag is screaming as your personal best tarpon hightails it to towards the Bahamas.

However, you land him and get an epic sunrise pic with your fishing buddy.

Sounds like a dream, right?

Well, that’s exactly what happened with Insider members Charles Ouriques and Austin Campbell.

Last week they had a great day of tarpon fishing together off of Florida’s East Coast, landing three monster tarpon, including the one in the picture above.

Wish you were having personal best days out on the water?

You can!

  1. Join the Insider Club. You can meet other guys in your area (like Charles and Austin did) and go out and catch monster fish together.
