State Record Tarpon Caught in Port O’Connor

“As far as memories, that’s probably one of the best…I guess because I had both my boys and it was my son’s bachelor party,” said Greg Heine, who caught the large fish.

The record tarpon weighed 247.6 pounds and measured 81 inches long.

The group was fishing for bull reds and sharks in the Port O’Connor area when the giant tarpon hit.
