Permit Fishing in the Florida Keys

Scientific name: Trachimotus Falcatus

Best time to fish: March through October

The hunt: Sight fishing; wrecks. Anglers beam with pride when recounting permit tales. That’s because like bonefish, permit are smart, wary, and known for leaving now and asking questions later. Weather you sight fish the flats or send bait down to sunken wrecks, a permit on the line is a battle to remember – they fight with the determination of a jack crevalle but the power of a whole school.
