Man vs. Tarpon: The Ultimate Tarpon Fight Captured On Film!
Remember last week when we published a blog asking if fishing was a sport or hobby? (see that post here)
Well, I think after you see this video below, we can all agree that fishing is a sport.
Watching this was giving me flashbacks of “Old Man And The Sea!”
Both the tarpon and the man were physically whipped… neither of them wanting to give up, give in, or accept defeat.
After one hour and 40 minutes of Man vs. Tarpon, they both win as man gets to touch the leader for a catch, while the tarpon gets to live another day with a quick release next to the boat.
The angler in the video is Harri Hotti, and you could tell he was used to being out there in his Maverick flats boat alone fighting silver kings.
Angler Harri Hotti = Salt Strong
