I have been featured in many
publications over the years. Some they featured my fishing
techniques. Some photos of me. A lot of them used Jenni’s
photos. Several of them just used Jenni’s photos taken in
my boat to make someone else look good…lol
Here are a few that I could find. I
wish I saved them all.
Sport Fishing Magazine-June
This was a cool article Doug Olander
wrote about a big shark that has tormented the tarpon of
Boca Grande for years.
This particular shark I have had a
grudge against for decades. The hammerhead shark eating a
tarpon photo is one of Jenni’s.
Sport Fishing Magazine-May
#1 Boca Grande,
Florida “The famed Pass and so much more!”
I was honored to be listed as the
featured guide in the Boca Grande/Charlotte Harbor area by
Sport Fishing Magazine in this article about the 14 top
tarpon destinations in the world.
Florida Sportsman –
“The end of summer
bite is particularly strong on Charlotte Harbor. This
sprawling, 330 square mile Southwest Florida estuary is
fed by three rivers and framed by seagrass beds and
living oyster reefs.”
“That’s where Port
Charlotte Photographer Jenni Bennett caught these
spectacular images. Her husband Capt. Mark Bennett, is a
busy guide, carving out a niche in quiet backwaters,
miles and weeks beyond Boca Grande Pass.”
Jeff Weakley, editor
1998-”Kings of the Hill”
This is a real cool article about a
day when John West and I fished a hill tide together.

2002-”Who is Joe Miller?”

West. The centerfold photo was me holding a Boca Grande
tarpon next to the boat.

Florida Sportsman-May 2006
In this issue they used several of
Jenni’s photos in this article about Lee County tarpon.
In this issue the centerfold photo,
table of contents and several others were Jenni’s.
Sport Fishing Magazine-April
This issue had a nice sidebar
segment on me about kite fishing for tarpon. They had never
heard of anyone utilizing a kite for tarpon ever before. To
tell you the truth, when I started using the technique I
never had either.
Texas Fish and Game
Both of these photos, the cover and
inside story, are ours. The second one has become quite
famous. It is a favorite of photo thief’s all over the
There was a great article in this
issue about tarpon fishing in Nicaragua. All of the tarpon
photos were taken by Jenni. (in Charlotte Harbor of course!)
Obviously, the tarpon photos are
Florida Sportsman-April 2007
This issue had lots of our photos,
the cover and several inside. The whole issue was dedicated
to tarpon fishing. Here are a few of the photos.
Florida Sportsman-June 2009
Sport Fishing Magazine-April
This is one of Jenni’s first cover
shot’s. The money she got for it bought her first real
professional Nikon camera. A few days after this magazine
came out she got a call from Scott Kerrigan (a.k.a. the Man
when it comes to big game photography) to ask how she got
this shot. I thought that was cool.
Florida Sportsman, April
This issue featured a centerfold
shot of Jenni and I with a nice permit.
Photo by Earle Waters.
This issue had a story about
satellite tagging tarpon.
The photo of me with a tarpon boat
side was taken by Jason Cannon.
