PALM BEACH COUNTY, FLORIDA (FOX NEWS) – Joshua Jorgensen has hooked a lot of fish in his lifetime, but he ranks a 100-pound-plus tarpon among his proudest personal achievements.
Jorgensen, the creator of the online fishing series BlackTipH, tells Fox News he’s caught plenty of bigger tarpon, but never such a massive catch while fishing from the shore.
“I’d say it’s one of the biggest accomplishments for a Florida angler to catch a tarpon from the shore – it’s a very challenging fish to catch,” Jorgensen says. “Everyone was freaking out.”
It all started a few weeks back, when Jorgensen and cameraman Davis Bennett decided to head south in Palm Beach County, after finding that Hurricane Dorian had muddied the more northern waters to the point where they looked like “chocolate milk.” The mullet were running, Jorgensen said, and he knew bigger fish couldn’t be far behind.
“We just winged it, we went south,” he said, the two of them eventually stopping in Boca Raton.
