Permit are just one more fish that you can catch on your charter and there are a lot of them out there if you hit them at the right time. They like to hang around reefs just off the beaches and run in schools of anywhere from 10 to 1000 fish in a school. The size of these fish can be from 5lbs to 50lbs. They also run the beaches and passes and usually become a victim of a silver dollar size crab or a nice size shrimp. They will also eat a fly or a jig and the captain will have a rod rigged up with usually one of each until he figures out what they are in the mood for that day. These fish are super strong for their size and a blast to catch on a light rod.
