Via Fin-Chasers.com: “About a decade ago Daniel Goz was backpacking through the Caribbean and Central America in search of tarpon and found an area with very remote fishing for tarpon, snook, and jacks. In 2007 he then decided to bring a float tube to fish the river system independently. The success was remarkable and he found out that you can hook, fight, and release giant tarpon unharmed while fishing from a float tube.”
