Description

At Robbie's Marina - most fun you can have with a $3 bucket of fish. They've been hand-feeding the tarpon there for years and they're numerous, aggressive and ginormous. Awesome.

Description from Wikipedia

The Elopiformes /ɨˌlɒpɨˈfɔrmiːz/ are the order of ray-finned fish including the tarpons, tenpounders, and ladyfish, as well as a number of extinct types. They have a long fossil record, easily distinguished from other fishes by the presence of an additional set of bones in the throat.

No range data available.
