Yeah that's a Permit. Needs to be 11" at the fork. Better safe than sorry, if you're unsure let it go. I let all Permit go and hope we can get some decent size ones around here one day.

Subtle differences between the two. The head region and longer curved back dorsal is the only way I can tell. The pompano that I caught have had more of a yellow underside than the orange of this one. Great catch. I agree that it would be nice to start seeing some larger ones here.

Thanks guys for confirming. He was 11" at the fork, but he was caught in Alabama. Couldn't find the AL min size limit posted for Permit, only Pompano.
