Biggest Tarpon Ever Caught!

Most fishermen dream of catching a world-record-sized fish, especially a world-record tarpon! In this episode of BlacktipH, we travel to Bahia Solano, Colombia, to fish the sardine migration along the coast of the Baudó Mountains. Shortly after Josh released his first-ever roosterfish, he hooks the biggest tarpon that we had ever seen! This fish was massive!


Josh, Alberto Meija, and Dr. Robert Borrego battled this behemoth for nearly two hours before the fish gave up. After quickly taking a photo of the monster fish, we released it back into the Ocean. At first, we thought this fish weighed around 250 lbs, but after looking at pictures of another record-sized tarpon on Google, we started to believe that our fish was a world record!

I called Billy Delph from Delph Fishing and Raymond Douglas from King Sailfish Mounts to validate our catch. Both men agreed that this fish must have weighed over 300 lbs and thus breaking the world record! The estimated weight using the Bonefish Tarpon Trust Tarpon Weight Calculator was 312 lbs.

Comment 1: Luke Bouwman Said: “I “GUARANTEE” that was the world record. You’re insane for letting him go. But at the same time, I respect the hell out of you for it. People like you make us fishermen look good when it comes to the conservation of these beasts. Congrats Josh and get better brotha so you can keep pushing out this video. You keep me and my guys entertained while we’re deployed over here in Syria”

Comment 2: Luke Bouwman Said:I have mad respect for Josh! The fact that he was able to take in that moment and realize that he may possibly have the world record for tarpon, yet release the fish unharmed into the wild really shows how he cares about the animals! Keep fishing guys.”

Comment 3: Luke Bouwman Said: Congratulations guys! That is a fish of a lifetime, and what big fish dreams are made of! 20 years ago, someone would have killed it, just to measure, weigh, and mount it. I am glad to see you released it to live and reproduce, so that we may catch one!”

Comment 4: Luke Bouwman Said: “Hi Josh sorry to hear about your back. Get better soon Bro. That video was one of the most Epic videos yet. I was literally jumping out of my chair every time that Tarpon came out of the water. That was an excellent job of teamwork between the three of you. I give you guys Massive Respect for releasing that fish.”

This fish actually very calm in nature! In the photo belᴏw, yᴏu can see the BIGGEST Tarpon Ever Caught!!
