 It's always interesting to me how things work out sometimes.  Today I had Anthony and Christina from N.Y. and if there was a theme to the trip and their attitude to catching fish was "we're on vacation, we don't give a crap."  They were relaxed from the moment they jumped in the boat and well, that relaxed me too.  I took them to the first spot of the morning and Christina quickly outfished Anthony catching jacks, snappers, losing a snook or two and more.  Then that spot slowed down so we hit the finger channels where it started off a bit slow but as the tide began to slow down the fishing picked up.  Hmmm, that's weird.  Anyway, they were on fire catching nice yellow jacks on every cast and mixing in a few snappers and other species along the way.  Then it happened!  A school of permit popped up behind the boat and were cruising on the surface for all the world to see.  I pointed them out to Anthony and a perfect cast later he was on!   We saw the permit come up and eat, it was awesome!  After a careful fight, we landed the permit and got a good release.  Then Anthony asked me, "So why was that a big deal?"  LOL  I had to explain it.  Time for him, to pick a new hobby.
