More Pine Island Permit

Victoria from New Jersey finally did it and landed my first Pine Island permit on the flats yesterday. We were actually fishing for baby tarpon on a windy and cloudy Saturday morning when this one pound beauty ate a live shrimp under a Cajun Cork. Permit are not uncommon in the deeper Gulf Of Mexico waters right outside Pine Island Sound and we're starting to see more of them on the shallows each year. I'm hoping that this is a trend that will continue and maybe we'll rival the Keys in a few years as a destination for these beautiful gamefish.
