Not sure what a tarpon is? It's something you can lure with your hands, if you know where to go! Although I'm not sure you'd want to catch it that way. There are a few places you can go to feed the tarpon comfortably and conveniently from the dock of a nearby restaurant or attraction. The most famous of which is probably Robbie's of Islamorada. The layout has changed a bit over the last few years, I suppose they've had too many brazen birds arriving to steal catch and later injure themselves. So, the dock's feeding area has been somewhat restricted and even has a sort of pelican police . Here's a view from 2016 Here's a view from a more recent visit at the end of 2018 And of course the only photo I have of me feeding them myself is the one where the bait slipped out of my fingers!
