The weather here in Miami has been so unpredictable lately, nothing like our typical summer pattern that's for sure and this morning was no exception.  Mike and Wde are such great guys and were in Miami for the singular mission of fishing as much as possible.  With the weather so unstable I decided to stay close to the marina and it paid off.  Mike caught about 8 different species and Wade was not far behind as we looked for tarpon.  Then, I hear "I got him!" and Wade was on to something that was smoking the reel!  Mike asked me what it was but I chose to not say a thing, just in case, but I was pretty sure I knew what Wade had hooked.  After a number of blistering runs and significant pressure on the fish, up came a big permit.  YES!!!  I love permit!  We got the pics, the release and then it was a moment to bask in the glory.  I ended the trip looking for tarpon to no avail only finding three by a bridge.  Wow, what a fish, what a morning and thankfully the weather right over us held up while it was going south quick all around us.
