Default permit in destin

last friday i was in destin to meet a friend for an early lunch.i walked down on a dock in the harbor and saw what i thought was a big jack crevalle rooting in the sand. this struck me as odd bahavior for a jack so i had to take a closer look. at closer inspection my jack turned out to be a permit in the 20 pound range. call me crazy but, i have fished all my life and know my fish very well. there was no questioning what it was being that i was only about 7 feet away. just as every avid fisherman knows you never have a rod when you see something like this. i will probably never see another permit in this area so i figured i would post this. if anyone has ever seen any here before, i would be interested in hearing from you. until next time, tight lines.

Capt Corey Maxwell caught one last year in Santa Rosa Sound. I hooked a 15lb+ permit of the old pensacola beach fishing pier in the early 90's.

They come through here occationally!

There is a picture of one caught here in our area hanging up in Gulf Breeze Bait and Tackle. I don't think your crazy, just lucky. Well, luckier if you had a rod:banghead, but still lucky to see one here.
