Permit will be permit

Miami - Saltwater Fishing Report

John fished with me last year and wanted to catch his first permit but bonefish as a back up, we caught bonefish. Today the mission remained the same and under perfect conditions feeling more like fall each day we found a ton of permit. Big permit, medium permit, small permit, permit everywhere. There was one problem, they were being permit and extra picky today. We lost count of the schools of permit of all sizes we saw and John made some very good casts where the crab would land in front of the school, they would swirl all around it but not eat. So frustrating! As the tide slowed so did the fishing so I took him to another spot. Here the tide was "running late" but we still had good current. I told John we had the perfect amount of water for permit at this spot but there would be more bonefish than permit, I was hoping the fish wouldn't let me down. About 15 minutes into fishing this spot John hooks a freight train and a long fight later requiring I chase the fish, John had his bucket list fish at the side of the boat, a big permit. Yes!!!!! We fished the same spot for the balance of the trip and he proceeded to land three bonefish. What a way to end the trip and be part of John catching one of the last remaining fish on his bucket list. Way to go John!
