There is little in inshore saltwater fishing more explosive and powerful than a tarpon fight. From the first jump to the final crank, they are exhausting. This June, host Joe Cermele and long-time buddy (and tarpon virgin) Mark Modoski flew to Key West with a mission: catch all the tarpon they could in two days until their arms gave out. On a good day, veteran captain Mike Weinhofer expects 10 to 15 hook ups in a morning. Toss in incessant rain, finicky fish, and the wrath of the U.S. Navy, and the game can quickly get more challenging than expected. None the less, the duo flew home with sore shoulders and clothes slathered in plenty of tarpon slime.
