“It’s easier to view current [tarpon fishing] practices in Boca Grande pass as a criminal enterprise than a sporting one. Given all the loco and corrupt politicians in Tallahassee it would be naive to expect adult action on this but one can always hope. Further stressing these often fifty year old fish in one of the world’s greatest concentration of sharks should arouse the indignation with anyone possessed of even a minimal sense of fairness.” –Tom McGuane
