“A guide friend of mine says that tarpon are like Deion Sanders and reds are like Larry Csonka. They are a six-pack of Bud to the Atlantic salmon’s Sancerre; a pit bull to the whippet bonefish; a paragraph to the one-sentence largemouth.” Charles Gaines goes fishing along the U.S. Gulf coast with our friends Tom Montgomery and Jimbo Meador and finds a fishery that has recovered all of its former glory.
