Texas Angler Lands 210-Pound Record Tarpon

Jeremy Ebert of Deer Park, TX, was casting for redfish off the Galveston Fishing Pier when he hooked into a whole lot of silver. The tarpon he eventually landed with the help of several nearby anglers weighed in at 210 pounds, 11 ounces, just nipping the previous state record of 210 pounds even.
