Karim Chaar, the skipper shows us some handy tips for the best way to attach live baits to your hook when targetting Tarpon.

A long fight ensues before Henry lands his 5th biggest ever Tarpon....what a fish! We take a look at Danny's career before the scores are tallied and the pair head to the golf course.
