Tarpon Tamers Flock to Grand Isle

Tarpon are some of the toughest fish on the Gulf waters. What do you expect of a fish that belongs to the genus, Megalops? The fishers of the Gulf Coast have had their battles with these great beasts, but that's no reason not to celebrate. Starting today, the Grand Isle Tarpon Rodeo returns after the Big Oozy put the giant pole party on hiatus last year. Even if you don't want to trawl and tame, the festival features plenty of music, and there's a chance to watch the big ones get weighed in. Check out the full schedule here.
