A Save the Tarpon Victory

Yesterday some goodness happened in Florida.

The Boca Grande Jig was declared illegal in Florida.

The BG Jig

The BG Jig

The jig fueled the Professional Tarpon Tournament Series. This is what that looked like:

Here’s the thing… the jig is really designed to do one thing… snag tarpon. Snagging fish shouldn’t be the aim of any angler and the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission agreed.

This victory is largely due to the work of Save the Tarpon. Damn fine job, guys.
