Adam and Daniel added permit notches on their belt, Patrick was thrilled with his permit, Ryan got a permit as part of his “soft” super slam, and Dan 2 landed a beauty mid-week.


Tarpon (Sabalo): Mac got a tarpon off the dock!! Dante got a nice fish on a last minute trip on his departure day. As he was not scheduled to leave here until 2 pm, he fished from 6 am to 1 pm, landed the tarpon, took a shower and headed out with a bagged lunch for the planein his pack! Jeremy had a 4 jump encounter with a large tarpon that will be forever etched in his brain (I clearly remember the first tarpon I jumped 20 years ago)
