January 2017 Happy New Year From GiantTarpon.com

In now with the start of my 30th year of consecutive and continuous full-time guiding.

Lifetime Big BuckI did just an abbreviated deer hunt during 'the rut' in the midwest. Rich had business to take care of and I too had 
a lot going on. Rich offered me the keys to his place in Missouri. I obliged.

I was not sure what to expect. There were not a lot of game photos this year. I just knew that the way Rich takes care of things- they'd be there.  A long story short- about 90 minutes into "legal shooting time" a 17 point-186 inch non-typical (gross inches) emerged from the creek bed just over 200 yards away. A few years ago, a big buck eluded me on near the same shot. Back then, I pulled the rifle down as I thought the obstructed shot was too difficult to make a clean kill. This year--now with a few of these animals under my belt- I did not make a thought about it. And so it was done-a lifetime whitetail is now mine.

Since- the past 6 weeks have been mild. Under good conditions-I am still getting both juvenile and adult tarpon, snook, redfish, trout and pompano. Dates for spring, summer and fall are filling in nicely. 

I had stopped writing static fishing reports in 2009 and started micro-blogging using 'social media". While that has worked well for me-I too am aware that the goal of 'transparency' is not being fully reached by millions who choose not to use social media. This page can be very time consuming and too--becomes old news quickly. 

I've thought long and hard about how to address this issue in a manner that it does not take all of my time-yet I can provide an open source for anyone using the Internet. 

Now enter a new page "The Captain's Log". Once I am have everything up to full speed on the site- I'll post fresh content as I can. I still encourage Facebook, Twitter and Instagram-for a 'closer look", but I think the blog is the answer for current info without getting into "memberships".

Blogs allow interaction with the readers. I ask that the content being posted be of positive nature. This will not be or become a "Fishing Forum". As long as we can all get along and I have little to no need to edit the postings of others-I am happy to keep it going. 

The address will be 


Below are some images of recent catches. The winter is said to be mild, but it is not being classified as an El Nino. All things being the same in a "mild winter" we can anticipate the action to continue!

Screaming Drags and Tired Arms!
