    Default 33 lb Permit.

    Found this and thought I would share it with the rest of you guys...

    I would probably cr@p myself if this fish decided to attach itself to my line...

    That is a BEAST!

    Dick Cameron (owner of the Palometa club) caught two fish over 50lbs in one season. imagine that.

    The way my species list is going I might never get a Permit full stop...

    2 x 50lb's would literally be the stuff of dreams for me.
    Would love to chat to him and hear him recount the two fish and hear what he did differently between the first and the second one?

    Glad I made your day...ya did feel like a bit of a twot when i realised my mistake, but never having seen either a permit or a GT in the flesh...well....ok....but at first glance i did think it looked more like a GT than a permit....silly me. Ya, glad to be back...someone who shall remain nameless, called me and begged me to come back, as the forum was getting a bit stale they said, so I cam beck to cause some k@k using my real name, not like some other stirrers who hide behind their avatars. Anyway, but honestly, I really did for a minute think it was GT
