Not many fish get a saltwater fisherman more excited than the “Silver King” or the Tarpon. The Tarpon is incredibly smart, thus making it a very elusive fish to catch. They get huge and are ferocious fighters leaping into the air and running of yards of line at a time. This Tarpon was shot near the docks of Robbies Marina in Islamorada, Florida in the Keys. If you get down that way, a visit to Robbies to feed the hungry Tarpon is a must. Get a small bucket of fish to feed, by hand, a the masses of very aggressive Tarpon. The braver you are, the better the show. These silver beauties will come out of the water after the bait. It is a sight to behold and even if you are a chicken it is a blast to watch the people freak out when the Tarpon come out the water at them. Screams of excitement fill the air. I wanted to finish this shot with an abstract look, so I used several layers and textures for the end print. It looks amazing as a very large print on metallic paper.. I hope you enjoy viewing it.
