Tippets: Pyramid Monsters, Detecting Strikes, New Ground for Tarpon Research

  • Alex Landeen fishes for the Lahontan cutthroat “monsters” of Pyramid Lake and shares the amazing images that resulted in a recent post and photo collection on Hatch Magazine.
  • Detecting strikes when fishing a nymph can be difficult. However, Tom Rosenbauer outlines tactics for success in a recent post and instructional video via Orvis.
  • The Bonefish and Tarpon Trust is continuing their work and research on juvenile tarpon behavior and habitat.  Recently, they broke ground at a new restoration site that will use antenna arrays to track juvenile tarpon through a series of canals. “The first step is to see how the fish currently use the canal system,” said JoEllen Wilson, BTT’s Juvenile Tarpon Habitat Program Manager. “Then once the restoration is complete, we will continue to sample to see if the tarpon prefer one type of habitat over another.” Via The Fishing Wire.
