Jupiter Inlet Permit, photo by Sam Farkas. “On this particular day, the water was exceptionally clear while I was free diving in the Jupiter Inlet. I spotted this school of Permit out of the corner of my eye and I managed to get close enough to them to get this shot as they swam out towards the south jetty.”
Snook School, photo by Paul Dabill. Dabill’s shot of schooling snook illustrates Brett Fitzgerald’s recent story (September issue) in Florida Sportsman, “State of the Snook,” about the latest developments in snook fishing and conservation across Florida.
