John C. and I
The weather is perfect. Sunny and calm. With Snook season closed, its time to start fishing the day’s. I invited my good friend John C. to go after the Permit. The ocean was as calm as it can get. Once we got to the spot we started to fish. I We never spotted the Permit. We were fishing with shrimp tipped jigs on 30lb. test leader. I hooked up first with a nice big fish, it gave me one heck of a run. It ended up being a big Kingfish. I can’t believe I landed it on that gear. I had it hooked just perfect. John caught a few smaller kings and big boy Jack. I caught a couple of Bonita as well. I got to feed one to a Barracuda, that was quite the sight. The Permit finally started to show themselves later in the afternoon. We never could get hooked up. They just wouldn’t hit. We both had a few casts in the middle of them. It was still a great day, full of action.
