Seven Mile Tarpon
Paul is in Marathon, the largest of the Florida Keys and meets up with legendary skipper Donnie Braswell who plans to put Paul on some Tarpon. They set off early to Seven Mile Bridge, which Donnie is sure will hold some big fish. Paul be using live Mullet as bait and Donnie gives Paul plenty of advice before he starts, especially as there are lots of obstacles around with the bridge pylons. There's plenty of fish about, rolling between the bridges, and a couple take Paul's bait but hooking them is tricky and so they decide to move a little. The move pays dividends and Paul hooks into a nice fish and enjoys a strong battle before the Tarpon throws the hook near the end. The next fish is an altogether different proposition which Donnie estimates at 125lb and has to get on the engine quickly to chase it down. A long spectacular fight ensues before the Silver King makes one huge jump near the boat and breaks Paul's leader. As evening comes around, Paul gets into another one but can he land this one?
