This was a good trip. I got a tip that the Permit were near the Inlet so I invited a good friend Eric to check it out. We caught a few baits, croakers. The tide was switching to the outgoing around 4:30 p.m. Once the tide switched we fished the Croakers and I hooked up and landed a fat over sized Snook. A few minutes later Eric caught a Snook about 32 inches.
After a bit we started to spot the crabs coming out on the tide. We netted a few and started fishing them. Eric was on fire, catching 3 Permit 20 to 30 lbs. on light tackle. Well, I just have this curse on me with Permit this year. On this day I had two opportunity’s, the first one the fish Spit the bait right as I was going to set the hook. On my Second chance I broke him off. It was a big fish. My bad……It was a lot of fun any ways. I’ll get me one this year.
