Fishing mostly for Snook and Redfish.Lately every time I’m under the Ringling causeway bridge I’ve been seeing big tarpon and was hoping someone might know what I need to land one.Live Bait or artificial?

Gordon nailed it! Take the claws off the crabs and let it swim.

Beautiful shot Gordon. I usually look for tarpon underneath the Rte 1 bridge just below Boca Chica. I launch from the Naval Air Station there and get there in 10 minutes.
