How the heck do FishTargets work, anyway?
This, is "The King Of Gamefish."
Tarpon are known to reach 300 pounds. They characteristically jump when hooked, covering up to 8' high and 20' horizontally. A "baby" tarpon is one up to 20 pounds. No wonder they are described as "The King!"
Tarpon are saltwater fish that prefer to inhabit warmer, shallow water. Their range is concentrated around the Caribbean area stretching as far north Florida, and as far south as Venezuela. There is also a much smaller subspecies found around Australia, and the associated area. They are primarily a fish of the inshore regions of the Gulf Coast unless pressed to travel due to cold waters, when they have been known to stray as far north as Nova Scotia. During the winter months, they retreat to deeper and/or warmer waters, returning to a more active life with warming water in spring. There are some populations of "landlocked" tarpon, but they do not reach the huge proportions like those that live in the sea.
Tarpon are primarily night feeders, with mullet, crabs and shrimp being the favored foods. Conventional fishing involves stillfishing or drifting with live bait. Trolling is also done, where very heavy tackle and 100-pound test lines are the rule. Light tackle enthusiasts can also hook these monsters, but landing one is another story.
