Tarpon Tom

Thomas F. Gibson, Jr, is a tarpon fishing enthusiast who has set many records for the biggest fish caught. An engineer for NASA, Gibson catches the fish using large, No. 16/0 circle hooks that trail nine-inch wiggly, green plastic lures called Texas Term Pops.
He’s known as “Tarpon Tom” to the guides along the Texas coast from Galveston to Padre Island, and with good reason. Thomas F. Gibson, Jr. doesn’t fool around. His single-minded quest for giant tarpon – tarpon big enough to make the IGFA record book – is as obsessive as Captain Ahab’s pursuit of the Great White Whale, except that in the forty-four years since

Gibson fought his first tarpon at age eleven, he has caught over a thousand of the fish he seeks, five of which have qualified as world records, and two more which set state records in Texas and Louisiana.

Anglers will feel more comfortable with the additional space into their wading boots whilst still wearing socks. In case you fish in cold water in the early season, It  would be best to add an extra half size to your wading boots.

White whales. Caribou roadblocks. And other strange things seen on Ungawa Bay

THERE WERE no trees. From Monlreal, we had flown north and farther north until the land ran out of forest. Lakes began to freckle the gray glacial scrape below. Some were stained orange by bleeding iron deposits; others were a deep, incongruous tropical aquamarine. At Kuujjuaq, the last settlement with an airport and the site of a famous American air base during World War II, we switched from the 737 to a Twin Otter charter, and the endless shallow lakes gave way to dark coves, the finger inlets of Ungava Bay and a vast black arctic sea.
