Dave, Greg, Mikey, and Joey
Â Dave is from Minnesota Mikey and Joey are his boys. Greg lives in S. Dakota and is Dave’s brother-in-law. I picked them up at the Sebastian Inlet State Park boat ramp. The weather was perfect, a light west wind and sunny. We decided to try for Kings and Permit. When we left the Inlet the tide was incoming. The greenies were thick, there were about 6 huge schools on the surface just north. We caught plenty of baits. I also picked up 3 dozen live shrimp.
When we arrived at our spot. I set out a free line and slowed trolled. It only took about 1 minute and there was a fish on. A big Barracuda. We set up drifts over the spot and were sighting schools of permit. Joey was hot handed, this 10 year old can fish. He landed a nice Kingfish and a nice Barracuda. Joey also hooked up a permit for a bit but it broke off. Greg and Joey both lost one as well. Joey hooked up his second permit and landed it all by himself, 15lbs. I’m telling you this kid was impressive. Greg was having a heck of day, just some bad luck. Patience paid off at the end though when he hooked up to a screamer Permit. A fight that he will never forget. It was a nice 20lb. fish. That was so great to hook you guys up. I thank you for everything and it was all my pleasur e. Hopefully we can fish together again soon.
