On a recent fishing excursion with charter partner Capt. Sean Rice and Lawrence Eu, the owner and founder of Eupro Tackle, we did well in our pursuit of juvenile poons. After quickly sighting young Tarpon rolling in the early morning shadows, we set our anchor on the out going tide, pitched to the first poon to break water and zinnng, it was poon on!

The first Tarpon spit the hook after a lot of high-powered head shakes and arial acrobatics. A quick retrieve and fast recast was immediately rewarded with more of the same. I remember thinking, “Man, this is going to be a good day!” Before I could turn around Capt. Sean Rice was battling one to the right of me. Poons were rolling everywhere!

Lawrence soon hooked up; his Eupro rod had that sweet bend in it, as the determined poon peeled the 15lb Eupro braided line off his 2500 series reel!

Baby Tarpon on Eupro light tackle was a blast that day!

If you would like to get in on the action give us a call at 1877-357-HOOK or go to and start fishing "Fishing Like A Pro With Eupro" and Shamrock Charters!
