If you ever battled a Tarpon before, you know this is one durable trophy fish. Most fights last from 20 to 40 minutes, although you should try and end the struggle as soon as possible. Other than ensuring the fish’s survival, this also helps in avoiding the sharks. The toothy critters are hardly scarce around here.

This awesome jerkbait by Rapala (the X-Rap series) is designed for optimal performance in the 3-8 feet depth range. Of course, if you know you will be fishing in shallow water (or if you need a hard lure to get down really low), you will need to try out a crankbait lure with a longer bill to get down deep.

Black Drum have also made a good showing in the TampaBay and there have been a few schools with 100-500 fish in the school. The black drum are Huge and will really test your tackle.
