Florida Sportsman member: Bassin Assassin Set the hook on a good fish that went ballistic. She went out and then back for the dock. Kept her away and she made a great jump. Circled the boat and Jeff got her in the net. She measured 28.5 inches.
As a fishing guide, I spend a lot of time chasing jacks, whether that’s the big migrating crevalles on the beach or Intracoastal seawalls, permit on the reefs, inlets or wrecks or amberjacks on the artificial reefs, and of all the great gamefish I pursue, it’s the jack species that break the majority of rods and hearts.
It is a dream of mine to take a weekend-to-weekend, nine-day trip from one end of the Florida Keys to another, targeting permit exclusively. I would begin on the flats of Biscayne Bay, nearly in the shadow of downtown Miami.
Performance meets style is the best way to describe the Blue Wave 2400 Pure Bay. Computer engineering combined with over 40 years of boat building experience has produced a bay boat that meets the needs of the most demanding angler and looks good doing it.
60 years in the boat building industry is evident in Skeeter’s new Saltwater Series SX2250 Bay Boat. Designed with the serious fisherman in mind, this boat serves a dual role with a super shallow draft and a hull design that will flatten a choppy bay.
