You’ve Got To See What Happens When This Angler Hooks Into A 100lb Tarpon On A $20 Zebco!
And this wasn’t just some little juvenile tarpon…
This was an estimated 6 foot, 100-pound tarpon that Capt. Billy fought for a solid 45 minutes.
Notice that his rod snaps halfway through the battle, and you can see the top part of his rod on the line once the tarpon gets closer to the boat. But that didn’t stop Capt. Billy Clyde Alstrom from giving up the fight… and it certainly didn’t stop the tarpon.
After multiple leader touches, and even getting the tarpon right up next to the boat for a release, the tarpon finally does what they are known best for doing… well, I won’t ruin it for you, check out the full video below for yourself.
The ending is pretty epic after a 45-minute fight.
Well done Capt. Billy!
Salt Strong catch man!
