HEY: Don't let this May to August stuff turn you off. It's absolutely true that the larger tarpon are migrating through during those months. However there are plenty of 15# to 50# resident fish around all year. Frankly, I'd rather catch a bunch of smaller fish, than get the snot beat out of me by 90# fish. Don't get me wrong, I WANT the 90#, but I'm no Andy Mill and can't wup that size in 20 min. A question for you: are you thinking flyrod? If so, and if this is a first for you, you really should be starting on the "smaller" guys.
