Took my pro angler off the beach for the first time this past weekend!
First couple minutes out I got what appeared to be a tiny 14 inch long blacktip shark. He hit a tiny 3 inch of so mullet lol. So the bait was barely eaten so I figured eh leave it on. Then after pedaling around for an hour or so I set the rod down in the holder and WHAM. ZZZZZzZZZzzz that line started screaming! Then about 10 yds out in front of me a beautiful tarpon came blasting out of the 20ft depths! He jumped quite a few times and man o man was it just incredible! Now I fish for tarpon in the backwaters and creeks around where I live and they're awesome for a fight, but damn was that a fight I wasn't expecting. This being my biggest tarpon and my first time with one in the ocean. I fought em for 17 minutes and 26 seconds per what's recorded on the gopro! All in all that was the most fun I've had in my pro angler since I bought it.
