For those who recognize the importance of first impressions, take note of the Tarpon 317’s hull.  You are likely to break out a tape measure believing that this boat is actually much larger. An aggressive bow entry and slightly rounded stern combine to give the Tarpon a soft, assuring ride. Dual locking rod lockers in the bow deck, coupled with a four-rod rocket launcher on the fiberglass hardtop and additional racks under the gunwales provide ample space to bring a variety of setups to chase multiple spieces.
