One of the most coveted inshore gamefish in the world, the wily permit is usually targeted in the waters of the Florida Keys and Central America, but more anglers are learning about the incredible permit fishery off the Treasure Coast where some of the largest permit can be found. Permit migrate through the area from late March through August, and average 15 to 25 pounds, while fish over 50 pounds can be captured. They are a schooling fish, so where you find one, there will be more, often hundreds more. For the most part, our permit fishing is done along the beaches or over shallow wrecks within a few miles of shore. These hard fighting fish never give up, and will test your skills with spinning or fly tackle. The average summer permit is close to 30 pounds, and will produce a fight that may last well over 30 minutes, depending on the tackle. Permit are crab eaters, although they will also take large live shrimp. But for the most part, we target these fish with live crabs or crab flies. Although considered edible, we do not keep permit for consumption.
