I found this in the back of the Harbor on Sunday Feb 28th...wish I could have caught him alive! You cant tell the size in the pic but Im sure it was a permit...looked about 8lbs or so.
+1tunapopper (3/3/2010)I'm going to start an debate and hopefully Karon will chime in as well, but from the shape of the head, length of the fins particularly the caudal and second dorsal I think it might just be a huge pompano.
I'm not a marine biologist but it lacks a lot of key features found in a permit.
Are you waiting until May to get on the yak or what? I am expecting big things from you as far as prestigous catches and competition! We might be getting together an armada of yaks on a nice calm day in late april to do like a 3 mile drift out east....Kinda like a line so none can escape us an we can increase our odds...what do you think?tunapopper (3/3/2010)Whatever it is, I think its past its expiration date and shouldn't be consumed by humans
