I AM A NATIVE OF bRADENTON, AND HAVE NEVE REALLY HEARD OF TARPON UP rYE. NOT SAYIN IT AIN'T POSSIBLE, BUT IT IS MORE LIKELY YOU WERE SEEING COMMON MULLET, OR POSSIBALLY SOME GAR? THERE ARE PLENTY OF GAR UP THERE. ALSO, I KNOW OF A FEW PEOPLE CATCHING SNOOK THERE NEAR THE BRIDGE! WHO KNOWS? MAYBE THEY WERE TARPON...
