Well...my wife as usual showed me who was boss on the boat today. Tania caught a super-duper permit while I caught a little one. It was a grand fight for her. I hooked up first but that fish I think was eaten by a goliath as the leader was ripped to shreds. I'm sure that this fish would have been bigger than hers. LOL
If you have read this forum for a few years you will remember that Tania has caught quite a few of these big permit. Probably four over 40#. I am blessed to have a wife who loves to fish. The fish were released after photos.
