Outdoors
Captain's corner
Aquick glance at my records for September reminded me of past summers' late-season tarpon action. For the past two years, dense schools of glass minnows have gathered along the beaches toward the end of summer, from St. Pete to Honeymoon Island. With the glassies come a variety of fish, most notably big tarpon. We have hooked 15 or more tarpon some days while the glass minnows were thick. These are not like the pre-spawn tarpon that roam beaches in large migratory schools during May and June.
