Is your Tarpon the older design or the current design with Slide-Trax?
If the older design (like current Perception Pescador 12.0) install a set of Scotty rod holders behind the cockpit, on each side of the small hatch (as far outboard as you can). You can go as simple as the Scotty Spinning rod holder with deck mount or the round flush mount, adjustable extender and power lock rod holder.
You can also mount a pair of Scotty's to the outboard sides of your milkcrate, just make sure the crate is secure in the tankwell.
If you have the current Tarpon you can install a pair of Scotty's (or RAM) holders on the tracks by utilizing the Mighty Mount
for the RAM)....simple!
Any of these installs will get the rods out of the way of your backcast, give your boat a lower profile and allow you to access the rods much easier, leaving the front deck clear for the "fight"!
Heritage Redfish, but same install as older Tarpon.
Mighty Mount for track install.
YakAttack Screw Ball for RAM installs.
