Very nice , Johnathan. From your other post, it's a fish catching machine.

Nice rig...can't go wrong with a tarpon. Have had my 120 for about 8 years. Still one of the best yaks around for the $$

Nice kayak, like the Tarpon's always have.

But, how can you possibly catch fish without a lawn chair seat and pedals ?

Funny enough, I caught a bunch more fish out of that Tarpon than my current Jackson Big Rig. I always live bait fished out of the tarpon though. Now I sight fish on artificial and even more recently started fly fishing, odd progression/ regression.

Do you stand in that Tarpon ?

I saw a post recently on another board response to the age old "which kayak should I buy" and a Hobie guy replied that people can't stand in a Tarpon... but I for sure have seen several people who do stand in theirs. Its amazing how dedicated Hobie guys are to the product, I think they are simply trying to justify the cost. The same guy was explaining how you can flutter the fins and pedal in shallow water.
