This is the most unorthodox method for catching tarpon we’ve ever seen.
Rather than trolling or casting a line to catch tarpon, this guy holds bait over the water and waits for them to bite his arm.
He also appears to have blood smeared on his arm. I’m wondering if he’s using that to attract the tarpon. Probably.
Whatever it’s for, it lures in a big one.
By the way, if you don’t like obnoxious, high-pitch screams, you should turn down your volume.
I think I’ll stick with the rod and reel.
