My buddy Capt. Mike Bartlett sent me this shot from his trip yesterday with an angler from New Jersey who caught four permit on the flats. They were using spinning gear and live crabs but this was still a fantastic day on Mike's new Beavertail BT-3. Key West and the Lower Keys are Ground Zero right now for permit fishing and if you want to land one of these big jacks there is no better guide than Capt. Mike Bartlett.
