If you have tarpon in your area but can not get them to bite on an artificial lure, and don't have live bait, try a small piece of rib meat from a dolphin or snapper. This may sound unusual but I have had many hookups with this technique. It is a deadly combination with a circle hook and any where from 50 to 80 lb flourocarbon leader.
