Atlantic Tarpon (Megalops atlanticus)

Origin: Atlantic Ocean. Like, the whole thing! I think they also live in the Gulf of Mexico.
Sighted at: World Wide Sportsman, Islamorada, FL

Kyle, Patrick and I took a brief sojourn to the World Wide Sportsman sport fishing store to check out the massive tarpon in the harbor! These massive (6 feet? Maybe more?) hogs were gobbling up snacks tossed into the water by delighted tourists.

Tarpon are one of the most popular sport fish in the Keys. Sometimes called the “silver king,” they’re big and impressive, and can put up a tough fight when you hook one.
