A time-lapse video of me kayaking in the channel to the west of Bahia Honda under the old and new US-1 bridges:
A video of some tarpons swimming under my kayak in deep water:
They get over 5 feet long and over 120 lbs. I first saw them in deep water, but then I saw a pair of them cruising by the beach in about 4 feet of water and another one in the harbor in Key West. I’ve yet to see anyone catching one, but I’ve seen many fishermen out trying to do so.
