Well, I caught the biggest fish of my life the other day and I am still sore from reeling it in. I couldn't believe the size of this tarpon when it first jumped. I had to use every ounce of strength I had to finish the fight and not hand it over to someone else. It weighed near 150 lbs and took me an hour to catch. Tarpon are my favorite fish to paint and catch so this was the thrill of a lifetime for me.
Below is a painting I had been working on before the catch.
