Bonefish and Permit!

Capt. Carl Ball
October 5, 2009
Biscayne Bay - Saltwater Fishing Report

On Friday bonefishing was productive for Chris King and friend Trey Smith from Austin, TX. They each landed bonefish and Trey nearly got a baby tarpon to the boat before it jumped and released itself. The team had several shots at bonefish and permit throughout the day. However, due to the tricky nature of sight fishing only two of the bones were landed.

Saturday I was fishing with my friend Bob Reichert from Shallow Water Customs in Fort Lauderdale. We asked several bonefish and permit if the bait was properly presented and it was a lone permit at the end of the day that thought it was. With an exciting bite and a blazing run from the 23 lb permit, our persistence finally paid off.

Bonefish, Permit, Tarpon

More Fishing Reports:


I specialize in both fly fishing and light tackle sight fishing for bonefish, permit, tarpon, snook and shark. My area of guiding expertise extends from the northern reaches of the Florida Keys to Miamiís Biscayne Bay and the waterways of Fort Lauderdale. Depending on your preference, Key Biscayne in Miami gives the angler the best opportunity to catch a variety of species, whereas in Fort Lauderdale, the focus is more on live baiting for tarpon, snook, jack crevalle and barracuda.
