    Seeing that they call this fish the "Arctic" Tarpon, I have to ask..... From everything I've read and a few videos I've seen of actual tarpon, do they fight anything like the real thing? I know tarpon get huge but for the size we have here do you think they even compare to that kind of fight? I've never caught an actual tarpon, and perhaps you haven't either, so maybe from what you've heard, what do you think? Thanks....

    I have caught both and can say that no they don't fight anywhere near as good as a Tarpon.
    They are called the Tarpon of the North because they do resemble a Tarpon in looks. They will jump though during the warmer water periods but they don't come out of the water like a Polaris Missile like Tarpon will.
