Pine Island Permit

Permit are not uncommon in the waters of SW FL but we rarely catch them on the flats.  My buddy Eric landed this little one from a school he spotted over a Matlacha Pass sandbar this morning.  He was using a 3" Gulp Shrimp which you can see in the permit's mouth.  It's not easy to get these fish to hit any kind of artificial in shallow water so that makes this an even more impressive catch.
