Altho fly fishing is the preferred method of Bone fishing, it is just as easy and enjoyable to catch them on Light or even ultra light spinning gear. The secret to catching Bone fish is accuracy in placeing the bait, lure, etc. to attract the fish. The same holds true for tarpon. However, the Tarpon are more easily lured. The Bone Fish is skidish and the wrong placement will in most cases frighten them off. Tarpon on the other hand are not as skidish and much easier to entice. In either case, Tarpon/Bone Fish caught is not so easily landed. So good luck, enjoy the thrill of the hunt and the excitement of the fight. But, remember it's catch and release ONLY.
