Cool man. That looked like a respectable backwater tarpon.

That's awesome. Thank you for sharing. I would take that mini tarpon all day long.

Pretty cool to see the pigs. Aren't those the pigs that got left by ships a couple hundred years ago and now they survive pretty much on handouts from visitors. sorta feral but not really.

I think that is the case somewhere, Exuma maybe?  There are wild pigs all over, but on some small cays they get regular visits from tour boats with food.  I asked our guide how long they had been there...he said April...lol...apparently his cousin owns a pig farm.  The brown ones are wild, but were captured a babies and brought with other domestics to the little cay.  Kudos to him for finding a way to get more tourist dollars.  For some reason Americans like seeing pigs on the beach.

As for the tarpon, they seemed to catch on pretty quick.  After catching the two little ones I threw everything I had but could not buy another take even though there were still a lot of tarpon bubbles around.

It is Exuma.  My sister in law was there in December.  I'd post a picture, but you all can't be trusted to keep your thoughts to yourselves  :lol

I'd never hear the end of it if she (or my wife for that matter) found out that I posted a picture of her in a bathing suit with a pig, especially if dudes were commenting.
