Tarpon!

For the last few weeks I’ve had some great Tarpon experiences in southwest Florida!  I haven’t yet caught “the big one” this season, but I know she’s out there, just waiting for me. . .

I’ve managed to get a few to the boat, jumped several, and got some great pics along the way — here’s just one.  One of these will surely end up as a painting!

Tarpon Fishing is Awesome!

Yesterday was one of those epic days in Florida during Tarpon season.  I was fishing with my friend Shawn and we were surrounded by fish all morning.  We used blue crabs and the fish gobbled them up (I like to call them “Tarpon candy”).  This beauty gave us quite a show.  I captured it using my iPhone, in slo-mo video — sorry for the vertical shot, but it couldn’t be helped.  This is why I love Tarpon!  Check out the GoPro pic below and see my Angry Tarpon video, too!

Brendan Coudal May Newsletter

As I head out Tarpon fishing, thought you might like to read a new edition of the Brendan Coudal News.  I showcase some of my favorite Tarpon paintings, which are available as canvas prints like Emerald Water Kings, Reel Reel Reel!, Fly Bye and Bustin Loose.  Enjoy!

2015 Ladies Day Tarpon Tournament

I’m so excited to be selected, for the 5th time (!), to represent the Boca Grande Ladies Day Tarpon Tournament!  My “Bubbly Mermaid” will be prominently displayed on limited edition posters, Tervis Tumblers, and lots of other cool swag.  It’s the Tournament’s 25th year, so I had that in mind when I was started painting my mermaid with a Tarpon and a bottle of champagne.  Stay tuned for info about the posters that will be for sale at the Boca Grande Chamber.  In the meantime, she’s available on my website as a canvas print or a wood sign!
