Catching Permit off the Keys

The Permit is a shallow water fish that should be on your Bucket List.

North American Fisherman is fishing out of the keys with Capt. Tadd VanDermark, and after tying into bonefish, he's tied into a Permit.

The Permit species loves the shallow water of the flats, and are very elusive and hard to catch. They can grow up to four feet in length and the biggest go nearly 80 pounds.

These fish also put up an epic fight, as witnessed here.
