Bush Sr.'s Tarpon

Recommended Posts

Bush chose to release the giant with an estimated weight of around 135 pounds -- the largest tarpon the 84-year-old ex-president has ever caught, the agency reported. The boat on which he was fishing had a legal harvest tag.

In place of the fishing trophy, a fiberglass reproduction mount will be commissioned to hang in the George H. W. Bush Presidential Library at Texas A&M University.

I know it was released, but it could be harmful to take a tarpon that large out of the water.

I can't believe that Bush Sr. is already 84 - and catching 100+ pound tarpon. I'm pretty sure if I live that long I'll be an invalid.

Fishing with A.Mills nonetheless!  Who I think his Tarpon rep is larger than his skiing one!  Have you seen his show...Chasing Silver.  Great photography, music and overall one of the most well put together fishing shows I have ever seen!  

Congrats to Bush Sr!
