Permit for Tarpon

Last night while fishing the lights under the bridge for Tarpon I got a very strange tarpon bite, it didn't jump but ran like crazy and put a dog eat dog fight.

After a 10' battle I had a permit on the boat.  What a nice surprise.

The strange thing is that permit are supposed to be these picky creatures that won't take anything but a live crab and I got this one on a Purple Bunny 2/0 tarpon fly, on the swing.

Life is good!
