Permits And Much More

Permits And Much More

Staying busy today we ran two more trips, a full day from 7 to 3 and a tarpon trip from 4 to 8. In the morning we tried drifting crabs to Permit and went 0 for 3 always getting broken off in the wreck. After we bumped out to 220 feet and hooked two nice Amberjacks that we released both in the 35 to 40 pound range. The guys definitely wanted some meat to take home so we ran to an area we like to work for Muttons. There we picked away at some smaller 5-8 pound Snapper including a 4 pound Flag Yellowtail Snapper. On the ride in we tried the Permit again. With the sun higher in the sky we could spot the schools a littler better. We hooked and released 5 before we ran out of crabs. One of the 5 permit was a monster! Well over 30lbs.   In the evening we had a Tarpon trip. We released two nice fish in the 85-100 pound range. The fish put up amazing fights on light tackle, 30lb braid to 50lb mono. We ended up spending most of time fighting fish, well over an hour on each fish
