We head deep into the Florida Everglades in search of early season Tarpon action along the shallow bays of Everglades National Park. Tarpon are staging in very shallow water, making excellent conditions for sight and blind casting to rolling fish. Pro Tail Paddles and the Charter Grade Sliders are the perfect presentations for swimming just subsurface along the shallow, tannic bays.

Gear List:

Rod: Sewell Tenax 7′ MH 17-40lb Spinning

Reel: Daiwa Saltist 4000

Line: 30lb Diawa J-Braid

Leader: 50lb Seaguar Fluorocarbon
