Pine Island Permit


I came across a very rare sight this morning: a big school of tailing permit in the north end of Pine Island Sound.  These fish are not uncommon in the deeper waters here in SW Florida but you don't often see them behaving like this on the flats anywhere north of the Keys.  These permit hung out for at least a half hour and ignored every fly I dropped on them.  At least they let me get a handful of mediocre photo to prove they were out there.
