Default Permit?

I caught this guy on a dead shrimp this afternoon among several nice whiting. Unless he is a Pompano with a funny mouth and stretched fins, I think it may be my first Permit. He fought better than his 14 inches would indicate. I never throw back a legal pomp, so I hope I did not do so with this guy when I released him.

I read that they taste much like Pompano and that they are edible, but not as good. Either way, I am glad to have it live another day!

I was surprised to see this photo on the local Caught Fishing tv show last night. Who woulda thunk it?

I understand that they can reach 30+ pounds. That would be quite a battle!
