Captains corner: Serious tarpon anglers increase tallies

Tarpon update: Weekend No. 6 of the 10-week Suncoast Tarpon Roundup was one of the better ones to date. Jeff Owens released 11 tarpon over the three-day fishing period and was the overall weekly winner. He released five silver kings June 24, four June 25, and two June 26. Mike Clark released six tarpon, all on June 25.

Women's division angler Mary Quinette released two fish, as did Landlubber division angler James Roehm. The Junior division winner for the week was Gavin McLay, who released one tarpon.

Week 7 was not quite as productive, but 15 fish came to leader July 1, 2 and 3. Clark released eight fish, giving him a total of 16 and the lead in the overall division.

Quinette released two more tarpon, giving her a total of 11 and the top spot in the Women's division. Landlubber division leader Roehm released two more. And Logan Clark tops the overall Junior division with three after releasing one during the weekend.
