“There are not many places nowadays where you don’t hear the classic saying on your arrival “you should have seen this place 20 years ago”, story of my life. Gabon is certainly one of those places, surprisingly. I have seen Tarpon behave out here in ways that is completely uncommon in the “well known” Tarpon fisheries. Apart from the behavior of the Tarpon it’s the size of the fish that really draw me to this fishery. Everyday you set foot on the skiff you have a legitimate shot at hooking a 250lb+ fish. Big fish aside this is a damn cool fishery right here on our African coastline, I look forward to spending many more years out here getting to know these majestic creatures.”
