Snook Vision... I don't have that hat but we have all had that feeling!

Ponce Permit October 13

View this post on Instagram

Permit are prized gamefish for anglers especially those who target them on the flats. Drew and Kelly Lawrence we're targeting bull reds with blue crabs at Ponce inlet, and they caught something a little different, a permit. “Kelly caught it while fishing for bull reds. Pretty good bycatch!” Said Drew. Permit aren't a normal catch this far up the coast but it does happen! . @the_dr.law_30 . . #permit #jack #ponceinlet #bluecrab #bycatch #fancy #surprise #firstcoast #bigfish #catchandrelease
