Miguel, Rick, Aaron, and Nathaniel

Nathaniel Permit in May The weather was perfect with a light breeze out of the south. We headed out the Sebastian Inlet just after 9 a.m. There were Spanish and Bonitas every where. We decided to try our luck and go for some bigger fish. I found the greenies just near my house. We trolled for a bit and nothing. We headed to a wreck and caught some big Jacks. Everyone got to catch a big Jack. It was quite the sight to see Aaron reel one in. He got the taste of what it is like to battle a big saltwater fish. Nathaniel caught a Barracuda and Had the only two Permit hits. Missed one and caught one. Great job on the Permit. We also caught a king. Thanks again guys for the trips it was a blast.

Matson and I

7-8-07 34lbs. We met at Hiram’s at 8 a.m. We fueled and set off to find crabs. Well crabs were difficult,we searched and searched. Around 11 a.m. we had a dozen and decided we better go. On the way there we saw some schools of Bonita exploding, we never stopped. We were on a mission to catch Permit.

The fishing was slow for awhile. The later it got the more the schools of Permit started showing themselves. They started moving a little faster and were balling up in tighter schools. Matson finally hooked up and it was on. All the hard work was starting to pay off. Matson had a nice Permit, After about 15 minutes of back and forth Matson landed a 27 lb Permit. Well the fish started feeding. The next few drifts I missed two fish. On one I pulled a hook half way through the fight.

Little did I know that missing those 2 fish was gonna be a good thing. I hooked up on the next drift with my biggest Permit yet. Matson was going for the camera when his rod went off! We were double hooked up. My fish went out and Matson’s fish was going down. This was crazy we had the camera rolling and nobody to film. My fish was big, and I could tell that he wasn’t coming in for awhile. Matson fought his fish straight up and down and after a long battle we landed his Permit approx. 25 lbs. My fish was still way out and now I could bring him closer. Another 10 minutes of battle and we landed my Biggest yet 35lbs. We took some nice pictures and the video should be interesting. The storms were coming in and it was time to go. What a great day of fishing. Check out these Pics.

Lenny & I

Lenny's  Permit 7-3-07 I have been thinking of permit lately and was wanting to go check out this spot that I fished a few years back. I invited a good friend Lenny. We met at Hiram’s around 7 a.m. The moon was full and the tide was high. We went to catch some crabs. It was difficult, but we did manage to get a dozen. We picked up some lives with the cast net on the way out of the Inlet. There were Spanish Mackeral along the beaches. I didn’t see any Tarpon.

We arrived at the wreck and started free lining some lives. We caught a Barracuda and missed a few cuda’s. We started fishing crabs and nothing. As the afternoon started in the sun straight up. The schools of permit started showing themselves. I hooked up with a nice Permit, what a fight, man that fish screamed. I would say it was close to 15lbs. We finally landed it and snapped a few pics.
Well we both missed two nice hits. Then I hooked the second fish. This one was bigger, It was on. These fish can pull, fast, hard and long runs. What a fish. I enjoyed every moment, we managed to get some video and pics. This Permit was approx. 20lbs. Well we had our limit and we wanted to keep fishing. Lenny hooked up next with a screamer! He was stoked, his fish was a biggie as well. This fish made a few long runs and put up one heck of a fight. Lenny did a good job at fighting this one. I did get most of it on video. That was Lenny’s first Permit.

The winds started up and it was getting later. The Permit were still there up on top but we were out of crabs. What a awesome day, a total Attitude Adjustment! check out these pics…
