Captain Shane Day took my brother and I tarpon fishing a couple miles offshore from Galveston and we had so much fun. We landed two tarpon and a jack. The tarpon was definitely on my bucket list and the whole time I was fighting this beautiful beast, I kept asking myself if this was really happening. Then I would tell myself to shut-up and reel, because I don't have it yet. I was shaking when we secured it at the side of the boat. I got my pic, my scale and a great memory! Thanks so much Shane, for allowing my this opportunity because of your angling expertise.
