Permit at the Boils!

My buddy Capt. Ed Barret took two of his neighbors out on October 18, 2022. He told me it was a beautiful morning with a light west wind and a swell of 2-3ft. He ran down to the Boils in hopes of catching some permit. 

It didn’t take long for the action to begin. He said before the first jig hit the bottom; they had their first fish on. They were using RUNCL jigs tipped with half a shrimp and drifted over the Boils. 

Ed said there was so much life at the boils and the bite was non-stop. By the time they ran out of bait, he said they caught countless Blue Runners, about 50 short Mutton Snapper, four Permit, a few Lane Snapper, and a Grass Porgy. Two of the Permit were only 15 inches, which are the shortest ones I have seen caught at the Boils. 

They all got back to the docks before noon and had a few fish for supper. They brought home 4 Permit, two Lane Snapper, one Porgy and a sore arm. All in all, they had a great day on the water. I pray all who made it out had a blessed trip with tight lines!
