Here’s a bit of common-sense advice: When you’re after big fish, use reasonably heavy tackle. I can’t believe I’m actually telling something so dead simple, but I feel like maybe I ought to after some things I saw this past week.

This time of year, there are a lot of anglers on Southwest Florida waters searching for tarpon and big sharks. Both are genuine tackle-busters, and the most common mistake I see is the use of overly heavy tackle. Very heavy gear is a pain to operate and can turn enjoyable sport into a chore, but going too far in the other direction is also a lousy plan.
