Mike Snook Rob Permit There back and ready for more. We fished together in August of last year. I picked them up at Capt. Hiram’s in the Morning. The weather is nice, winds are light east. The sun is out and it is hot, afternoon thunderstorms were in the forecast. We had the same game plan, catch croakers and make our way to the hot spot. There was a little bump on the ocean, coming out of the south east. The water temp is back up to 78 on the beaches. Bonita are busting everywhere.

Croakers were a little tougher to find today. We had to move around a bit. Once we had enough croakers we headed out. With five big guys on the boat we slowly made our way to our fishing spot. Just a few more days and I will get my boat back. Well once we arrived I spotted the huge Permit that have been around lately. Barracuda’s were very active today. Everyone caught 2 or 3 Bonita each and fed 2 or 3 Cuda’s as well. Mike was having his fun with the Snook. Loosing 3 fish at first and getting it right on the 4th. He landed a nice Snook close to 25lbs. Rob was the big hitter today landing a Permit weighing 20lbs. and a Redfish 20 lbs. as well.

With the storms approaching and the winds picking up, it was time to run back to the inlet. The tide was still coming in when we passed through at 1 p.m. This trip was a lot of fun, I really enjoy fishing with people that acknowledge and appreciate the hard work that it takes to keep everyone hooked up with big fish. So with that thanks again guys. Let me know on the sizes and long or short sleeves?
