Few fish are cooler on fly than BIG tarpon in shallow water and Florida is still one of the best places on the planet to do it πŸ˜‰

We spent a week fishing with Hervey Bay born Captain Jarad “Dingo” Boshammer how has been a licensed captain for twenty six years. At age 16 Dingo left Hervey Bay and started traveling the world chasing billfish. “Dingo” as his friends call him now resides in Jupiter, Florida. He settled down in this small town to raise a family and choose a different path for his fishing career. When he is not guiding Dingo can be found on his Chittum flats skiff fishing every chance he gets πŸ˜‰

Two and a half hours later after having the leader well inside the rod tip several times we broke her off boat side – Dingo called her for approx. 180+lbs ….

Katrina with her first snook

After we had both caught a couple of tarpon we decided to chase a few snook – Snook are such a cool fish and have some many similarities to our Aussie Barra – from their appearance to the techniques they repond to and the way they fight and jump !

Any fish on topwater is a bonus – this is Katrina’s first snook caught walking the dog πŸ˜‰
